Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field set for Dec. 7

Posted Oct 18, 2013

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 eighth annual Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field, Saturday, Dec. 7.

The Packers again are seeking assistance in finding a tree. Anyone from Wisconsin or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan who has a 40-50 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, Nov. 6.

The proposal and 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 Monday, Dec. 2. The owner of the selected tree will receive four tickets to the Packers-Steelers game on Dec. 22.

The tree selected for last year’s event was submitted by Robert Spice, of Green Bay, Wis., who donated a spruce evergreen. In recognition of providing the tree for the event, Spice received four tickets to the Dec. 23, 2012, Packers-Titans game.

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.
