Light Up Downtown Boca, a series of winter holiday festivities, kicks off on Friday, November 19 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mizner Park Amphitheater (MPA), 590 Plaza Real, with a FREE Holiday Festival culminating with the City of Boca Raton’s and Mizner Park’s annual tree lighting ceremony.
Festivities will include a holiday stage show at 5:30 p.m. and holiday movie on the lawn

The highlight of the evening will be the ceremonial lighting of the City’s tree led by
Mayor Scott Singer at 6:45 p.m. that will illuminate simultaneously with Mizner Park’s
47-foot animated tree at the south end of the center, followed by a spectacular fireworks
Display above the MPA at 7 p.m.
Throughout Mizner Park, 50,000 LED lights will adorn 75 palm trees; poles will be laced with garland; lights and four wreaths (each 60” in diameter) will be placed throughout the center; garland will be swooped throughout the gazebos and the valet parking station – all of which will be decorated with lights and holiday trimmings.
Located at the south end of the center, Mizner Park’s “iTree” consists of more than 32,000 life-like PVC branches, red & gold bows, ornament clusters and 25,000 clear & multi-colored LED lights. There will be 20-minute musical light shows performed nightly at 6 p.m., 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., continuing through the holiday season. The tree will be illuminated for photo opportunities between shows.
Your favorite Mizner Park restaurants will be open with special seating options offering great views of the holiday decor, lights, and fireworks. Please contact the restaurants directly for more information.
