The 35th annual Christmas Tree Lighting event started with holiday-themed entertainment from North Point Community Church before Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived and the tree was lit.
It took two stages for all of the events in Alpharetta's Christmas Tree Lighting to be held, with North Point Community Church using the larger, "lower" stage near Canton Street for its music and entertainment. Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle not only brought his children on stage for the traditional reading of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas to the crowd. He also had them join in the reading. Then it was time for the tree to light up the mini park at North Main and Milton Avenue, just behind the stage. Alpharetta Christian Academy, Rhythm and Shoes, and Maddie Monroe also provided entertainment.
