HIGH SCHOOL CHOIRS FROM ASHWAUBENON, WEST DE PERE AND PULASKI SET TO PERFORM IN ATRIUM
A 40-foot balsam tree from western Wisconsin's Jackson County was placed on Harlan Plaza Wednesday in preparation for Saturday evening's 'Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field.'
A crew will begin stringing more than 10,000 lights on the tree Thursday morning. Mills Fleet Farm is providing lights for the tree.
The tree will serve as the showpiece for 'Festival of Lights,' as the Packers and Festival Foods celebrate the yuletide spirit Saturday evening. The two-hour family-themed event, free to the public, is set to begin at 5 p.m. in the Lambeau Field Atrium and will include cookie decorating, holiday cartoons on a big screen TV, reindeer petting, inflatables, holiday card making for troops on duty and photo opportunities with Santa Claus.
Choirs from three area high schools, Ashwaubenon, Pulaski and West De Pere, will be performing holiday music as well during the event.
At 6:30 p.m. the event will move out onto Harlan Plaza for the formal lighting of the tree.
In addition, the Packers Pro Shop and Festival Foods are selling Packers ornaments with proceeds going to the Boys & Girls Club. Ornaments are priced at $5, with $2.50 going to charity, and are available the entire holiday season at the Packers Pro Shop and Festival Foods Stores.
