Christmas Tree Lighting at the Grand Galvez
On Friday, Nov. 26, the Grand Galvez is reviving its annual Galveston Holiday Lighting Celebration to bring in the holiday season with an appearance from Santa Claus and the lighting of the hotel’s 35-foot Christmas tree. The event takes place on the grand palm tree-lined front lawn of the hotel.
Following the tree lighting, Galveston Ballet, under the direction of Janel Amsallem, will perform a medley of variations from the ballet, “The Nutcracker,” along with other ballet favorites. New this year is the addition of the Galveston Symphony Brass Ensemble, under the direction of Sparky Koerner, performing holiday classics such as “Jingle Bells,” “Deck the Halls,” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.?? Throughout the evening festivities, Grand Galvez staff will collect monetary donations for The Salvation Army of Galveston County.
