Starting the count down to light up the tree!

Marquette, MI  –  November 21, 2017  –  If you were driving along US-41 in Marquette this morning, you may have noticed some work going on in between Applebee’s and Aspen Dental. This morning the Marquette Charter Township started setting up for the annual Catch the Christmas Spirit Tree Lighting Ceremony!

Since the township does their tree lighting every year, they’re making it a little more permanent. Thanks to the efforts of numerous local businesses and residents, the township put in a new fixture that will hold all of the trees to come! The hole is dug and the pipe is in! In just a few days we will have our tree up, decorated, and shining bright in the Township.

Make sure you join the Marquette Charter Township for the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday, November 28, 2017. It’ll be a great evening with live music in the Westwood Mall Parking lot starting at 6:00pm. Bring the whole family and sing along to your favorite carols lead by local artists. Around 6:30pm Santa will arrive on the fire truck, and the Sheriff’s Department will be on the look out for the Grinch!

Thanks to Westwood Mall for hosting the annual Catch the Christmas Spirit Tree Lighting Ceremony.

After we flip the switch and light up the tree, head inside Westwood Mall for refreshments and more entertainment. The night will continue inside with a dance performance from New Attitudes Dance Studio around 6:45 pm. Super One Foods has donated juice and cookies to snack on, and warm up with a fresh cup of joe from BIGGBY Coffee. And of course, jump in line to find out if your child has been naughty or nice. Pictures with Santa will run until 8:00 pm in the mall. There will also be a number of other displays in the mall including the UPAWS Appeal Store, face painting, and Upper Peninsula Children’s Museum area.

Come out with the family, enjoy a night with your community and Catch the Christmas Spirit!
