The City of Wylie invites everyone to usher in the holiday season with the Festival of Lights Tree Lighting Saturday, Dec. 1, from 5 to 7 p.m. in Olde City Park.

After a day of shopping and tasty treats at the Wylie Arts Festival, head down the street to Olde City Park for hot chocolate, cookies, kids' crafts and activities, performances by local children's choirs, and Mayor Eric Hogue's traditional reading of "A Visit From St. Nicholas," better known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas." The big switch will be thrown, and Christmastime 2018 will officially begin in Wide Awake Wylie.

Please note: FBC Wylie has moved the Christmas Parade to 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8.
