Fifth Annual Festival Of Lights At Lambeau Field Set For Saturday

Posted Nov 29, 2010

Holiday Tree Erected Monday On Harlan Plaza; To Be Decorated This Week

The Green Bay Packers and Festival Foods are set to host the fifth annual Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field, Saturday, Dec. 4, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The family-themed event, free to the public, will begin at 5 p.m. in the Lambeau Field Atrium, and feature The family-themed event, free to the public, will begin at 5 p.m. in the Lambeau Field Atrium, and feature the Kewaunee High School Choir and Mosinee High School Cantabile Choir performing holiday music, cookie decorating, holiday movies and cartoons, holiday card making, and photo opportunities with Santa Claus.

At 6:30 p.m. the event will move out onto Harlan Plaza for the formal lighting of the holiday tree.

The chosen holiday tree for the event was harvested Monday morning in Green Bay, and erected on Harlan Plaza in the afternoon. The decoration of the tree will follow later this week with more than 10,000 lights supplied by Mills Fleet Farm.

Susan Joppe, of Green Bay, was the lucky fan chosen to display her 40-foot spruce evergreen at Lambeau Field this holiday season. Joppe, who heard about the Packers’ search for a Christmas tree last year, is thrilled to have her tree selected.

“When I first moved into my house in 1994, the tree was maybe five feet tall,” Joppe said. “Since then, it has grown taller than my house and unfortunately, it was time to take it down. After hearing about the Packers’ search for a Christmas tree last year, I knew my tree would be a perfect fit.”

Joppe, in recognition of providing the tree for the event, will receive four tickets to the Packers-Giants game Dec. 26.

“At first, my family didn’t believe me when I told them the Packers had called and said our tree was chosen,” Joppe said. “They all thought someone was playing a joke on me. Once they finally understood it wasn’t a joke, they were just as excited as I was, and I know that this will be something we won’t forget.”
