Switching on the City Christmas Tree
On Saturday 18th November, the town's big Christmas tree is lit on Flakhaven. It's one of Odense's favourite traditions and always a crowd-pleaser. There is music and entertainment in town and of course Santa Claus visits on this day.
Goody bags will be handed out from 16.00-16.50 to all children (while stocks last) The Christmas tree will be lit at 17.00. At the same time, the rest of the Christmas lights in the centre are switched on and it is a fantastic sight when all the lights and decorations light up and create an almost magical atmosphere.
