The City of Orlando is moving the big annual Lake Eola tree lighting ceremony online this year.

In the interest of health and safety (and not gathering tightly-packed crowds), the holiday tradition can be viewed from the safety of your own home. "Tune in" to at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5.

The lighting event will feature Mayor Buddy Dyer, the News 6 morning hosts, Reverend Billy Brath, and the Orlando Concert Band.

After that, you may take in the dazzling lights of the holiday tree at Lake Eola IRL to your heart's content.
