    Has anyone heard when the tree lighting will be this year??? I have attempted to ask on FSE's FB page and emailed, but no response. I'll be there from the 5th to the 11 and would love to experience it..have missed it in the past. They changed the date one year and then did it on the original day.

    I emailed my casino contact and hopefully I can get you an answer. Trying to communicate with FSE is useless as you've discovered.

    The tree lighting was on Tues Dec 6 last year so your timing should be right. I'm hoping it is a little later this year as I dont arrive until the 9th...
