Don’t let the malls fool you: the lighting of the Christmas tree at Nathan Phillips Square marks the official start of the holiday season. The 47th annual Cavalcade of Lights will feature performances from Diamond Rings, Tyler Shaw, Cold Specks, Divine Brown, and Carvin Winans—and a giant fireworks presentation. DJ Dopey will keep the festivities going late into the night with an ice skating party under the lights.
