Kalamazoo's Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is only a few weeks away! Join us from 5:00 - 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 25 as we celebrate the season and light up Bronson Park! Have a cup of hot chocolate while the children enjoy creating their own arts and crafts, visits from Mr. and Mrs. Claus, ice carving, and a reading of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
