The family-themed event, free to the public, will take place in the Lambeau Field Atrium, and feature cookie decorating, holiday movies and cartoons, holiday card making, photo opportunities with Santa Claus and area high school choirs performing holiday music.
Volunteers will also be on hand during the event to collect toys and donations for Toys for Tots. Families attending the Festival of Lights are encouraged to donate new or gently-used toys to help families in need this holiday season.
Later, the event will move out onto Harlan Plaza for the formal lighting of the tree. Mills Fleet Farm is providing the lights for the tree.
The Packers are forgoing Fan Fest for 2012, and will continue to evaluate the event. Our goal is to enhance the event by examining its structure, programming elements and fan feedback. We also will be looking at the time of year for the event. The event’s future is undecided at this time.
The organization has enjoyed hosting the event during its six-year run and appreciates the interest and support of the thousands of fans who have attended.
