Overview
Locations

Since 1992, the Boiling Springs Civic Association has held a Tree and Luminary Lighting event at The Children's Lake. Volunteers light hundreds of luminary candles around the perimeter of the lake. Following the initial lighting, the luminaries will be then be lit on the following dates: December 9 to 11 and December 16-18. From December 23 through January 1, they will will be lit every night.

The tree is decorated and floated to the middle of the lake on the Friday morning before Thanksgiving. Then, during the lighting ceremony that always occurs on the first Sunday in December, the tree is lit as children gather to watch Santa Claus row across the lake and greet them at the gazebo.
