Birkdale Village Tree Lighting Schedule

Nov. 17. If you got caught in the Christmas Tree lighting event traffic jam last year at Birkdale Village, they’re trying to alleviate some of the issues this year. The event kicks off at 2 pm Saturday Nov. 18, but parking is expected to fill up quickly.

The parade starts at 4:30 pm; tree lighting at 6 pm.
