Tree chosen for Festival of Lights, set for Dec. 1

Posted Nov 20, 2012

Tree to be erected Nov. 27 on Harlan Plaza; Decorated during week

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 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, unwrapped 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.
 
The tree has been chosen for the event and will be harvested the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 27, in Green Bay, and erected on Harlan Plaza in the early afternoon. The decoration of the tree will follow later in the week with more than 10,000 lights supplied by Mills Fleet Farm. The winning tree was selected through a submission process in which fans submitted a photo of their tree and explained why it should be chosen.
 
Robert Spice of Green Bay nominated the winning tree that will be on display at Lambeau Field this holiday season. The evergreen is about 45 feet tall and has been in Spice’s front yard for many years.
 
In recognition of providing the tree for the event, Spice will receive four tickets to the Green Bay Packers-Tennessee Titans game on Dec. 23.
