The City of Nampa will host a Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Saturday.

Nampa’s tree is a 48.5-foot-tall, 30-foot-wide Colorado blue spruce donated by Mike and Bobbi Burnum, according to a news release.

“To keep our community safe, we are closing a few roads around the Christmas tree, located at 1200 Front Street, and Lloyd Square,” the release said. “Please be mindful of pedestrians crossing and thank you for following detours.”

There will be free parking in the garage next to the Nampa Public Library.

The day will also include Shop Small Saturday, the Nampa Farmer’s Market “Winter Wonderland,” free carriage rides and a Mrs. Claus reading at the Nampa Public Library. Salvation Army volunteers will also be distributing free hot chocolate.

The tree’s lights will be turned on at 6 p.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will make an appearance right after the tree lighting.
