Christmas tree lighting ceremony


Traditionally, the main symbol of winter festivities, the Christmas tree, is lit up on the first Saturday of December in the centre of the city – Theatre Square. Every time, the organisers of the celebration bring together and surprise thousands of residents and guests of the city with this unique ceremony of lighting the Christmas tree, and in recent years – two Christmas trees, on the Theatre and the Revival squares, to the accompaniment of sounds of music, the Santa Claus’s visit and the dazzling fireworks. Those unable to arrive at the Theatre Square, may watch live broadcasting of the Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Klaipėda and Lithuanian web portals. Throughout the festive season, the Christmas Fair allure you with flavorous gingerbread, hot juices and handmade Christmas souvenirs; social and cosy Advent events take place.
