Its the most wonderful time of the year! Join us for the 7th annual Festival of Lights in the Blue Earth Plaza on Friday November 29th in Manhattan, Kansas. Santa and his elves will be lighting the biggest holiday tree in Kansas at 7pm, so come on down to enjoy a hot chocolate next to the fire, listen to the music and be a part of the magic! 


The Festival of Lights kicks off the holidays in Manhattan, Kansas at the Blue Earth Plaza. The spectacular tree lighting ceremony is a FREE community event which includes local choirs singing, a horse drawn carriage, winter food and beverages as well as lots and lots of lights! The Festival of Lights is brought to you by local businesses, bringing together the Manhattan community to begin the winter season. 


Come on down to Blue Earth Plaza November 29th where we’lll be kicking off The Festival of Lights at 7pm. Its not what’s under the tree that matters its who’s gathered around it. We’ll see you at the tree. 



"For seven years now, the Festival of Lights has become our family's favorite tradition. Every year just after Thanksgiving, we meet at the tree and celebrate the season of giving."
