The City of Dallas will host Deck the Plaza 2020 on Saturday, November 21 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. The event will be a public, contactless, holiday drive-thru tree lighting at City Hall Plaza. The proposed route will begin eastbound on Young Street at Akard Street and turn south on Browder Street, adjacent to the Plaza.
The caravan will enter City Hall Plaza on Marilla Street and proceed through some holiday entertainment offered by the Office of Arts and Culture, socially distanced waves of good cheer from volunteer city staff and elected officials, a festival of lights and decorations, and end with a grand finale — a 35-foot holiday tree. As they caravan in their vehicles, attendees will be treated to holiday music and recorded messages from elected officials on Classical 101.1 WRR-FM.
There will be no giveaways in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Public health protocols will be strictly enforced. Walk-ups will not be allowed, and all attendees will be required to remain in their vehicles at all times. We know this year has been difficult for so many, and this an opportunity to safely provide some holiday cheer.
