- 2023 Christmas & Holiday fun starts November 17.
- Features a laser light show, Santa visits, & kid's characters!
For my kids the holidays are all about Santa, hot chocolate, and snow. For me it’s more about the music, Christmas lights, and snow. There is one place each holiday season that provides almost everything on both our lists – snow in Alabama is still rare enough to be a novelty. Bridge Street Town Center lights its giant Christmas tree each year around mid-November and if you aren’t already in the holiday mood by then, these FREE family-friendly events will get you there.
Make your holidays merry and bright at the Lights Up tree lighting ceremony at Bridge Street Town Center or catch one of the many holiday events! You can even make an outing of it – our group typically meets up at Barnes & Noble and then heads out towards the big Christmas tree. You can experience all these activities below by walking that route. (TIP: get there early to avoid parking hassles and as an added bonus, plenty of time to enjoy a little Starbucks)
