The Green Bay Packers and Festival Foods are set to host the fourth annual Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field, Saturday, Dec. 5, 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 displayed at Lambeau Field through the holiday season. Proposals should include a photo of the tree, and can be submitted through Monday, Nov. 9.

The proposal, with photo, can be submitted for consideration online at www.packers.com/fanzone/contests/festivalof_lights.

The Packers will arrange for the tree to be harvested and transported to Lambeau Field. The owner of the selected tree will receive four tickets to the Packers-Seahawks game, Dec. 27.

The tree selected for last year's event was submitted by Arline Rousseau, of Green Bay, whose 35-foot evergreen was relocated to Lambeau Field and decorated with thousands of lights.

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.

At 6:30 p.m. the event will move out onto Harlan Plaza for the formal lighting of the holiday tree. Mills Fleet Farm is providing the lights for the tree.
