HOUSTON (KIAH) –  The City of Galveston is having its holiday tree lighting this weekend, starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday at the Saengerfest Park on corner of the Strand and 23rd Street. 

Galveston Mayor Craig Brown will oversee the lighting and members of the Galveston police and fire departments will escort the special guest, Santa Claus!
