Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony & Concert at Citadel Outlets


The Citadel Outlets' 15th annual concert and tree lighting ceremony took place on Saturday, November 5, 2016.

The Disney Channel's Olivia Holt headlined the free concert along with performers Brian Justin Crum, Before You Exit and John Lindahl. 

FOX 11's Maria Sansone and Tony McEwing hosted the show that aired on Thanksgiving, ending with the lighting of the world's tallest live-cut tree. You can watch the entire special in the videos above.

The tree arrived at Citadel Outlets on October 18 and is 115-feet tall and has been decorated with roughly 18,000 LED lights and 10,000 ornaments and bows.

Citadel Outlets said in a press release that the tree is 40 feet taller than the average Rockefeller tree in New York City and it stands more than twice as tall as the letters of the Hollywood sign.

The release goes onto say that this holiday tree is part of a forest manicuring process that frees up forest space for smaller trees and keeps the forest healthy. Twelve replacement trees are planted in its place.
