Event Description

Medford winter lights festival. Santa Claus headlines the annual free, family-oriented holiday events coordinated by the Medford Parks and Recreation Department.

Sponsored by the City of Medford and Lithia, the Winter Lights Festival returns to Pear Blossom Park, along Fourth and Bartlett streets at The Commons, for the third straight year.

The 12th-annual Candy Cane Hunt – an adorable event geared for very young children — kicks off at 4:30 p.m. on the lawn in front of the Pear Blossom Park stage.

At 5:40 p.m., Santa arrives on stage, accompanied by the North Medford High School marching band. The jolly visitor from the North Pole is available for family photo-ops in the lobby of Sky Oak Financial, across from the park.

The civic Christmas tree will be illuminated at approximately 5:55 p.m. The permanent holiday tree is a Norway spruce, flanked by two Nordmann firs and an Engelmann spruce. The young trees will be adorned with dozens of ornaments and thousands of colorful LEDs.

The event features performances by the America’s Best Kids dance team (4:50 p.m.), the Medford Parks and Recreation “Princess Ballet” participants (5:05 p.m.), the Medford middle-school choir (5:20 p.m.), the North Medford High marching band (5:40 p.m.) and the Fusion Force Dancers (6 p.m.).

Other activities include City of Medford fire engine and police car displays and a jump house (weather permitting). Street Side Grill will be the food vendor, while Starbucks will serve drinks while supplies last.

For the third consecutive year, the Lithia 4 Kids Foundation is sponsoring a coloring contest for children ages 4-12 in the Lithia Headquarters from 3:30-5:15 p.m. Participants are eligible to win a bicycle.

The busy day begins with the popular Breakfast With Santa at the Santo Community Center gymnasium, sponsored by Hometown Buffet, Aloha Grill, Starbucks and Shari’s Café and Pies. The event is already sold out to 350 registrants.
