6-7 p.m.
Ankeny Market & Pavilion (AMP) 715 W. First St.

Make some memories at the Mayor's Tree Lighting! Mayor Gary Lorenz and the Ankeny City Council invite the community to come together to kick off and celebrate the holiday season.

Enjoy live entertainment from DJ Taz, an ice carving demonstration and more! The Ankeny Fire Department is asking for the community’s help to ensure that children in need can experience the excitement and joy of Christmas through the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign.  Guests are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to help the Ankeny Fire Department fill an ambulance with toys during the event. This free community event will conclude with the Mayor and Santa lighting the tree and a holiday fireworks show. View calendar event. Make this annual event part of your family's holiday traditions!
