Christmas in Cayce Festivities Offer Three Unique Events


The magic of Christmas returns to the City of Cayce for the 2023 Christmas in Cayce festivities! On Thursday, November 30, the City of Cayce will light the Christmas Tree at 6 pm at Cayce City Hall. After the tree lighting through the end of the year, Cayce citizens and visitors can drive through the Cayce City Hall campus to experience more than 35,000 Christmas lights and the City’s 22-foot Christmas tree at no cost!


November 30: City of Cayce’s Annual Tree Lighting, 6 pm

This year’s Cayce Tree Lighting Ceremony will feature students from the Busbee Creative Arts Academy Band and the Riverbank Elementary School Chorus. The Woman's Club of Cayce will be collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items, before and after the tree lighting, for Cayce Cares. These donations will be used to benefit God’s Helping Hands and the Scooter Scott Project to be given to local families in need. The Woman’s Club will also be accepting donations for tree light memorials. All donations received by November 26th will be included in the Tree Lighting Program. If you are unable to join us in person, watch along as it airs live at 6 pm on WLTX!
