On first Saturday of December each year, the annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony is held at the Historic Thomas Center.

The free program runs from 6-8 p.m., and features a visit from Santa, caroling and holiday music from local groups, and light refreshments served. Outside the Thomas Center, the Duck Pond Neighborhood Association offers carriage rides around the neighborhood, lit with luminaries for the occasion. The heart of the celebration is the holiday decorations on the giant tree and around the building, which are annually provided by the Thomas Center Associates.
