Join Us for Our 9th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Tuesday, December 4
On December 4, at 6:30 p.m., we'll light the Christmas tree after musical performances by local students.
The holiday season is just around the corner and Richmond International Raceway is ringing in the most joyous time of year at its Ninth Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday, December 4 at 6:30 p.m. The festive evening includes an illumination of the track’s Christmas tree, music and fun for the entire family and a visit from the jolly old elf.
The event takes place on Richmond International Raceway’s front yard, located at 600 East Laburnum Avenue (corner of Laburnum Ave. and Richmond-Henrico Turnpike/Meadowbridge Rd.).
Students from Laburnum Elementary School will provide tree decorations and musical entertainment. Students from L. Douglas Wilder Middle School will also provide decorations. The Henrico High School Mighty Marching Warrior Band will perform, as well. Additionally, Henrico High School’s football boosters will serve complimentary hot chocolate and cookies.
Attendees are encouraged to bring items for the Central Virginia Foodbank food drive and the Marine Toys for Tots toy drive. Richmond International Raceway will match all food and toy donations received at the track, can-for-can and toy-for-toy.
The Christmas tree will remain lit each night through Christmas Day.
