Downtown Tree Lighting/Festival of Trees/Mannheim Steamroller 

Wedneday-Monday, Nov. 27-Dec. 2

Two things scream "holidays" in Boise: the city's lighting of a towering evergreen and the return of Mannheim Steamroller.

Saint Alphonsus' Annual Festival of Trees launches the Christmas season in Boise with the Tree Lighting Celebration Nov. 29 in the Grove Plaza. Gather around the tree from 5-7 p.m. and join Mayor Dave Bieter and his family in lighting candles, singing carols and eating treats. As part of the celebration, you can take a tag off the Holiday Giving Tree and help support the Women's and Children's Alliance. You can drop off the gifts requested on the tag, or a financial contribution, at 720 W. Washington St. or any Zions Bank branch.

As part of the Festival of Trees, kids can have Breakfast with Santa Nov. 29-30, at the Boise Centre on the Grove, with doors open at 7:30 a.m. and Santa's arrival at 8 a.m. Tickets for the breakfast cost $12 per child and $18 per adult. Kids can also visit Santa Friday, Nov. 29-Sunday, Dec. 1. Children ages 4-12 get in for $4 and those 4 and younger are free. While the kiddies are sharing their wishes with Santa, you can browse the plethora of Christmas trees on display.

And if you want more carols with your tinsel, Mannheim Steamroller is rolling into town again Nov. 27 for a Morrison Center performance at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $46-$76.
