Festival Of Lights at Lambeau Field set for Dec. 1

Posted Oct 2, 2012

Search for tree underway; Toys for Tots donations to be accepted at event

The Green Bay Packers and Festival Foods are set to host the seventh annual Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field, Saturday, Dec. 1, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The Packers again are seeking assistance in finding a holiday tree. Anyone from Wisconsin or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan who has a 35-45 foot evergreen tree and wants to donate it to the event is asked to submit a proposal, in 100 words or less, on why his or her tree should be used for ‘Festival of Lights’ and be displayed at Lambeau Field through the holiday season. Proposals should include a photo of the tree, and can be submitted through Wednesday, Oct. 31.
The proposal, with photo, can be submitted for consideration online at http://nfl.packers.com/fan_zone/events/festival_of_lights/.
The Packers will arrange for the tree to be harvested and transported to Lambeau Field on Tuesday, Nov. 26. The owner of the selected tree will receive four tickets to a Packers game.
The tree selected for last year’s event was submitted by Nancy Crabb, of De Pere, Wis., who donated a spruce evergreen. In recognition of providing the tree for the event, Crabb received four tickets to the Dec. 25, 2011 Packers-Bears game.
The family-themed event, free to the public, will begin at 5 p.m. in the Lambeau Field Atrium, and feature area high school choirs performing holiday music, cookie decorating, holiday movies and cartoons, holiday card making, and photo opportunities with Santa Claus.
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.
At 6:30 p.m. 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.
