Be there as the city of Kalamazoo welcomes in this festive holiday season with the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony from 5:00pm-7:30pm in Bronson Park on Friday, November 25th. But that's not all, there are arts and crafts for the kids, visits with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, ice carving, and a reading of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas."

Also, while you're there, enjoy food from one of the many delicious food trucks Kalamazoo is known for, and sip hot chocolate with donations going to the YWCA's Domestic Violence Shelter.

There's no better way to celebrate the holidays and make lasting memories with the family.
