Experience the magical wonderland of lights at the annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony at Westminster City Hall, complete with live holiday music, food trucks, carnival games, and of course, a visit with Santa! The full-size sleigh and kid-size train are perfect settings for family photos. Dress warmly—the event is mostly outside!
