The state’s holiday season officially begins with the annual Christmas lighting ceremony at the Arkansas State Capitol on the evening of Saturday, December 7.
The Big Jingle Jubilee Holiday Parade will make its way down Capitol Avenue and end at the State Capitol. At dusk, dignitaries will flip the switch and illuminate the Capitol with around 100,000 lights outlining the building. The grand lighting ceremony concludes with a fireworks show above the gleaming Capitol dome. Lighting and fireworks will begin after dark, approximately 6 p.m.
Afterward, families can venture inside the Capitol to discover magnificent decorations that are perfect backdrops for family photos.
