Snider Plaza Tree Lighting - Sunday, November 22 - 1 to 6 p.m.
The 9th annual University Park Tree Lighting in Snider Plaza is scheduled for Sunday, November 22 from 1 to 6 p.m. The event will include live performances on the LegacyTexas Bank main stage, children’s activities, bounce houses and over a dozen vendors offering treats, food and drinks. Children will have the opportunity to meet the "Rein-Steer," have their faces painted and to snap a picture with jolly Santa Claus. The tree lighting will culminate the festivities.
Monetary donations for Phil Romano's Hunger Busters program and the North Texas Food Bank
Event attendees are encouraged to provide a monetary donation, large or small, to help stock the shelves of Phil Romano’s Hunger Busters program. Phil's non-profit provides an often missed third meal of the day to underprivileged children in 9 DISD schools, most of which sit at or below the poverty level. The Park Cities Rotary Club is also raising money for the North Texas Food Bank to provide for a mobile Food Pantry Truck that will be used in low income areas to provide food to those in need. Also, be on the lookout for the Rotary Club's “Giving Tree” booth, benefiting the children at George Washington Carver Elementary School.
Additional event parking
Additional parking will be available at the SMU Law School parking garage at Daniels and Hillcrest, and along Lovers Lane just west of Dickens, adjacent to Curtis Park and UP Elementary School.
