A big part of the holiday season is when you get to watch the tree lighting ceremonies and the city of Delray Beach is doing their tree lighting Thursday night.

The 100 foot Christmas tree will be lit up at 5:30 p.m., at Old School Square in the city's downtown area. The lighting will be followed by the "On the Avenue" holiday event, along Atlantic avenue.

Kids can visit Santa, ride the holiday carousel and do some ice skating.

East Atlantic ave. will be shut down for the event, which wraps up at 10 p.m.
