O Christmas Tree… O Christmas Tree... How Lovely are thy branches at Broadway at the Beach!

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts

So this year, our A Very Broadway Christmas had an unwelcomed guest, Mother Nature. As she brought down the rains on December 1st and became the Grinch of Broadway that day, we had to cancel our 24th Annual Tree Lighting Celebration. Bahumbug!

Even though we had to cancel the show, we did make some misty memories as we were able to light our brand new, spectacular tree! For the official lighting of our tree, click here to view our facebook live!

So… what exactly makes our new tree spectacular? Here's some festive facts:

Height: 46 Feet Tall

Number of branches: 580

There are approximately 14,500 RGB LED Lights.

Music & light show occurs every 30-minutes 4pm – 9pm, with the last show at 9pm daily.

When the synchronized music & light show are not playing the tree goes through a cycle of color changing effects.

This new tree is located in Broadway at the Beach's Center Court between Build A Bear Workshop, The Mole Hole, It'Sugar and Tsunami Surf Shop.

Center Court isn't the only place we have decked the halls at Broadway as there are six areas in your favorite spots with trees ranging from 8' to 14' creating a perfect photo op for you and your family, friends and Christmas crew to snap a pic and make memories this season at Broadway!

Come and experience the holidays at Broadway and when you do, be sure to share your holiday memories with us by using #AVeryBroadwayChristmas when posting!
