Town Center El Dorado Hills
47th Annual EDH Christmas Tree Lighting
Date: November 27, 2011
Location: Town Center
Every year for the last forty-seven years, El Dorado Hills has gotten excited about the holidays with the Christmas tree lighting event. The last six of those lightings were hosted by the Town Center, a Mansour Company project with Tony Mansour a regular attendee of the event. This year’s ceremony, on November 27th, was hosted by Radio Disney’s Rockin’ Roadshow with wholesome fun for the whole family.
Natalie Buerki, Town Center event coordinator, reported that more than 2,000 people crowded the center and its businesses to enjoy holiday themed refreshments, face painting, and strolling Dickens carolers singing holiday songs. The first 100 kids in attendance got a chance to play a stuff-your-stocking game to receive all sorts of treats.
Staged entertainment included performances by the Oak Ridge High School Dance Team and Choir, the El Dorado Musical Theater group, and the Center Stage Dance Academy. Santa arrived to greet the crowd from atop a red El Dorado Hills fire truck with lights flashing and sirens blaring and…to light the tree that sat at the top of the movie theatre complex.
