Giveaway: VIP Status for The Great Tree Lighting at The Domain


The Domain kicks off the holiday season on November 22, 2014 with a popular annual event, The Lighting of the Great Tree!

It’s become an Austin tradition to kick off the holiday season at The Domain’s popular family-friendly event, The Lighting of the Great Tree. Sunday, November 23
(changed from Saturday due to rain in the forecast) will be a day full of fun for kids and adults alike with FREE activities all day long to get you in the holiday spirit, culminating with the lighting of the 40-foot tree and a fireworks show. The tree, with over 6,000 twinkling lights and 400 multicolored ornaments, is sure to make your eyes sparkle! The event is FREE and open to the public. The Domain is located at 11410 Century Oaks Terrace, Austin.

Beginning at noon, revelers can enjoy:

  • Face Painting
  • Caricature drawings
  • Balloon twisting
  • Holiday crafts
Headlining the event, Sunny Sweeney will perform favorite holiday hits, in addition to a few of her most popular songs, before lighting the tree. Her debut album, “Heartbreakers Hall of Fame,” produced a trio of regional hits and launched her national and European tour. In June of 2010, the lead-off to her second album, “From a Table Away, ” became a Top 10 hit. Sweeney released her latest album, “Provoked,” in August.

The Lighting of the Great Tree will happen at 6 p.m. and will be followed by an amazing fireworks show. Can you guess who will be lighting the tree? Santa and a very special guest!

The holiday celebration will once again feature a special performance by Outside Voices, a vocal performance group comprised of Austin-area youth in grades K-12. Many stores will also offer special in-store events and discounts throughout the day.

Following the tree lighting, local musical artists will perform on the stage near Starbucks, with strolling carolers and larger-than-life stilt walking toy soldiers spreading cheer throughout the center. Don’t miss this much-loved Austin tradition!
