The show will be available to stream on-demand throughout the holiday season. Due to COVID-19-related public health concerns, the National Park Service (NPS) and National Park Foundation (NPF) will not host a live audience at the 2020 National Christmas Tree Lighting.
Local visitors are invited to President's Park to view the National Christmas Tree after the inital lighting ceremony, as well as the 56 trees representing every U.S. state, territory and the District of Columbia, decorated with ornaments designed by students from across the country.
