??Be immersed in the sights and sounds of the season, including live musical performances, appearances by Santa and Mrs. Claus, and ornament making and cookie decorating for the kids.
The ambiance of this historic hotel and its 40-foot-tall tree will usher in the holidays in grand fashion.
The sights, sounds, and sensations of the holiday season will all come to life at West Baden Springs Hotel’s grand tree lighting ceremony. One of our favorite annual traditions kicks off at 3pm with activities and interactive events for the kids. The magical moment comes at 7pm when the lights on our 40-foot tree come on to officially welcome the holiday season.
