The holiday season officially kicks off in Hayward on Saturday when the city hosts its annual tree lighting celebration.

The tree will be located on B and Watkins Streets in Downtown Hayward near city hall. The event is scheduled from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and in addition to the tree lighting, will also feature ice-skating and other activities and events for all ages.

Many of the downtown businesses will also offer up some specials and deals in honor of the gathering that usually draws thousands of people, according to the city of Hayward. St. Rose Hospital, Hayward Chamber of Commerce, Rotary International, Hayward Unified School District and Downtown Business Improvement Area all collaborated with the city to put the event on.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy for the drive and they will receive a raffle ticket with the chance to win a family fun basket.
