The city of Davenport and Downtown Davenport Partnership on Thursday announced that the second-annual Christmas Tree Lighting will be Friday, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. at Kaiserslautern Square (often known as K-Square), 119 E. 3rd Street.

The first Kaiserslautern Square Christmas tree was put up in 2021.

The free family-friendly event will feature Quad City Arts carolers kicking off the holiday season with hot chocolate and plenty of holiday cheer as a huge Norway Spruce Christmas Tree is illuminated for the first time this season, according to a Thursday release. The lighting ceremony will also serve as a kick-off to the opening night Premiere Party of the Kwik Star Festival of Trees at the RiverCenter, nearby immediately following the event.   

K-Square is on East 3rd Street in Davenport, across from the Adler Theatre and RiverCenter.
