Rice Park Powered by Xcel Energy: Tree Lighting Ceremony

The annual Tree Lighting and Grand Opening Celebration for the Rice Park Powered by Xcel Energy will take place November 28th from 5 - 6 p.m. Visit Saint Paul, the City of Saint Paul, and Xcel Energy invite you to experience Rice Park Powered by Xcel Energy, downtown Saint Paul’s winter holiday destination.

Downtown Saint Paul’s historic Rice Park transforms into an enchanting winter wonderland from November 28, 2015 to January 1, 2015 (some of the light display will remain on until April 1). Rice Park powered by Xcel Energy captures the spirit of the holiday season with a tree as tall and bright as the iconic Rockefeller Center tree in New York City. The gigantic tree in Rice Park will be lit from dusk to dawn, seven days a week. The 2015 – 2016 tree will be lit with 15,000 energy-efficient LED lights. The park will sparkle with millions of twinkling lights, classic Nutcracker and angel statues, and other holiday décor.
