Tree chosen for eighth annual Festival of Lights, set for Dec. 7

Posted Nov 22, 2013

Tree to be erected Dec. 2 on Harlan Plaza; decorated during week

The Green Bay Packers and Festival Foods are set to host the eighth annual Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field, Saturday, Dec. 7, 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 holiday movies and cartoons, holiday card making, area high school choirs performing holiday music and photo opportunities with Santa Claus.

Families will also have the chance to decorate sugar cookies provided by Festival Foods and can purchase Packers-themed gingerbread men for $2 each.

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 Monday, Dec. 2, 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.

Margaret Van Deurzen of Green Bay nominated the winning tree that will be on display at Lambeau Field this holiday season. The blue spruce is about 36 feet tall and has been in Van Deurzen’s front yard since before she moved into the house in 1993.

In recognition of providing the tree for the event, Van Deurzen will receive four tickets to the Green Bay Packers-Pittsburgh Steelers game on Dec. 22.
