Ring in the season with Mayor Dr. Armando O’Caña and Mission city leaders.  The City of Mission will kick off the holiday season with the Mayor’s Annual Tree Lighting and this year, the celebration will again run two days.

A special tree lighting will highlight the holiday spectacular on Friday at 6:30 p.m.

Join us for a magical night including entertainment by our local school districts and a special visit from Santa Claus!”
