What do Christmas carolers, cheerleading elves, ice carving, and Clarence Peabody have in common? They all provide entertainment during the Big Cedar Lodge Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on the Truman Café lawn! Every Saturday evening until Christmas, crowds come from near and far to watch a lucky child light up the huge Christmas tree; however, it’s the entertainment before that special moment that make the night truly memorable!
Take Clarence Peabody for example –as Master of Ceremonies for the evening, he offers some unconventional wit with his songs, jokes, and elf wrangling! The carolers, dressed in Victorian clothing, bring a more traditional aspect to the gathering, and the ice carving is not only beautiful but interesting! As each chunk of ice falls away, the creations come to life. And what about the elves, you ask? Well, their Pep Rally is so good; the jolly old elf himself makes a special appearance!
Don’t miss your chance to join the celebration each Saturday at 4:30pm on the Truman Lawn at Big Cedar Lodge. You can also find refreshments, crafts, bon-fires, and all around merriment! And, don't forget your camera!
