FORT WORTH, Texas – The official lighting of one of the state’s tallest living Christmas trees followed by a holiday-themed fireworks show will highlight the annual Speedway Children’s Charities-Texas Chapter Grant Ceremony set for tonight on The Speedway Club Circle at Texas Motor Speedway.

The outdoor event, free and open to the public, will feature nearly $400,000 in grants being distributed to North Texas children’s organizations and the lighting of a massive 59-foot Douglas fir that culminates with a fireworks display in front of Texas Motor Speedway’s administration building located at 3545 Lone Star Circle in north Fort Worth.

The ceremony also includes a special visit from Santa Claus, performance from the Chisolm Trail Middle School Choir and the distribution of 100 bicycles and helmets to less fortunate children courtesy of PrimeLending.
