Christmas Tree Lighting
Following Thanksgiving, guests are invited to skip the shopping lines and stick around to watch The Abbey Resort transform into an enchanting winter wonderland of holiday cheer that continues into the new year! The 9th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting will be held on Saturday, November 25 inside the iconic Abbey Resort. Old St. Nick will arrive at 6 p.m. sharp to get the party started, and the icing on the Christmas cookies will be the lighting of the traditional Abbey Resort Christmas Tree at 6:45 p.m. when one good boy or girl is selected by Santa to turn on the holiday spirit by pulling the switch to illuminate the tree. The event will feature Christmas music, festive refreshments and plenty of opportunities to take pictures with Santa.
