26th Annual Hospice of San Joaquin 'Tree of Lights' ceremony Tues. Nov. 25, 6 p.m. at Delta College

The Hospice of San Joaquin and Delta College will illuminate the holiday sky at the 26th Annual Hospice of San Joaquin "Tree of Lights" Ceremony, Tue., Nov. 25, 6 p.m. at Delta’s main Pacific Avenue entrance. As is tradition, a local hospice services family will flip the giant PG&E switch, coloring the tree with 1600 multicolored lights. Last year, the family of Ramon "Ray" Vigil had that honor.

A seasonal Stockton favorite, this popular and festive ceremony rings in a dazzling opening to the holiday season. It's always a magnificent sight as one of Delta’s huge Pacific Avenue evergreens blooms to colorful life. The college likes to boast: “We believe Delta has the best holiday tree in Stockton!”
