Pinewood Bowl, Inc. has partnered with the Nebraska State Capitol Staff to plan the annual Nebraska State Tree Lighting and Carol Sing since 1948. We conclude the ceremony, with the singing of Carols as the kids in the audience help the Governor light the State Holiday Tree. The ceremony is held in the Capitol Rotunda on the first Sunday of December with the musical prelude beginning at 1:30pm. There is also musical entertainment provided by local school groups and/or adult chamber choirs. Governor Pete Ricketts delivered the Holiday Message at the December 11, 2016 ceremony. The Ceremony is emceed by Charlie Brogan and broadcast live on KFOR and her statewide affiliate stations. Please enter the Capitol Building thru the South Entrance (H Street). This fun event is a Nebraska tradition, and is free to the public! Plan on joining us December 10, 2017 as we welcome the Holiday Season!
