WJHG is teaming up with the City of Lynn Haven to host an annual Christmas Tree Lighting event beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Sharon Sheffield Park.

This event includes musical performances by local choirs and bands, local food vendors selling food and beverages, and the lighting of the Christmas tree.

This year’s tree lighting will be in coordination with WJHG’s 850 Strong Christmas Spectacular. It will be a night that adds some much needed Christmas spirit and showcases some very talented performers, including Newschannel 7's Neysa Wilkins.

We are also collecting canned food for our food drive. We will give out t-shirts on a first-come-first serve basis for anyone that brings a canned food item to the event.

We will be tapping this show to air again on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Here's a full list of the times the show will air:

Christmas Eve: 10 p.m. - 11 p.m.
Christmas Day: 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Christmas Eve: 11:30 p.m. -12:30 a.m.

Christmas Eve: 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.
Christmas Day: 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.
