FREE 13th Annual
Tree Lighting Concert in LA
The Citadel Outlets' record-breaking tree is an impressive 115 feet tall and is sourced from the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. It spans 20 feet longer than an NBA basketball court and stands at twice the size of the famous Hollywood Sign. In addition, the center's Christmas tree is 40-feet taller than the Rockefeller Christmas Tree in New York City. In addition to hosting the World's Tallest Live Cut Christmas Tree, Citadel Outlets is also home to the World's Largest Bow. Sitting atop the iconic Citadel wall overlooking the 5 Freeway, the World's Largest Bow is 36 feet wide by 21 feet tall with 18 loops and two 72-feet long tails that drape down the front of the building. Over 4,000 cans of red paint and primer and one half-ton of glitter were used to cover the striking accouterment.
Event attendees are encouraged to bring gift donations for Children's Hospital Los Angeles. To maintain safety and well being of CHLA patients, only new and unwrapped toys will be accepted. Please note that CHLA cannot accept stuffed toys or toys with small pellets or beans. All donations should be non-toxic, free of sharp edges and cannot promote violence and/or aggressive behaviors. Thanks to generous supporters CHLA is able to gift approximately 80,000 toys per year.
