The City of Kalamazoo’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will again be held at Bronson Park, the heart of Kalamazoo. The Mayor, City Commissioners, City Manager and Santa Claus will attend to read “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, light Kalamazoo’s Christmas trees, and kickoff what is sure to be another great holiday season! We will have special visits by WMU’s A Moment of Magic and Ms. Greater Kalamazoo.
The event hot chocolate was generously donated by Bob Evans, please stop by their restaurant to say thanks and grab some food while holiday shopping!
