Craig Campbell and Us The Duo, in addition to performances from Boys II Bow Ties, Mannheim Steamroller and the US Navy Band led by Emmy nominated music director Steve Gibson will perform at the 2017 National Christmas Tree Lighting taking place November 30th on the Ellipse at President’s Park (White House). Additional entertainers and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.
Co-presented by the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation, this beloved American tradition is celebrating its 95th year. Through a partnership with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, Hallmark Channel will exclusively broadcast the National Christmas Tree Lighting on December 4th.
A lovely melding of music, outdoor performance, and holiday cheer, the National Christmas Tree Lighting is a great example of the unique ways that people can experience national parks and #FindYourPark/ #EncuentraTuParque.
No matter if you attend in person or watch on TV, everyone can join the fun by sharing your photos and favorites memories using #NCTL2017 and tagging @TheNationalTree on Twitter.
