The City of Bryant has come up with a new way for the community to celebrate Christmas together in 2023. This year, they will ask local entities to adopt trees that will line the street on Progress Way. It’s the inaugural Bryant Christmas Stroll and Tree Lighting Festival. This will happen on Saturday, December 9th, 2023 from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Businesses, organizations, families or individuals can adopt a tree. The City is seeking Christmas Tree sponsors who will each purchase a 7-foot tree for $100. This includes the tree, delivery, and installation of the tree on the grounds. Once installed, the tree sponsor can decorate the tree as they wish.
This Festival will be a family-friendly event for the community. Come for the tree lighting ceremony, live musical performances, hot chocolate stands, inflatables for the kids, and a photo op with Santa Claus.

There will be two prizes for best-decorated tree. The 2023 Christmas Committee will vote for the Judge’s Choice tree. Community members will vote for the People’s Choice winner during the festival, as they stroll through the trees.
Each tree will have a plaque displaying the name of the sponsor, through December 31st, 2023. The winners will get a larger sign in front of their tree from December 11th through December 31st, showcasing their win.
Those who adopt a tree will also get a social media mention from the City of Bryant, an announcement during event, and recognition on marketing materials.
