The Green Bay Packers and Festival Foods are set to host the sixth annual Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field, Saturday, Nov. 19, 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, Oct. 24.
The proposal, with photo, can be submitted for consideration online by clicking here
The Packers will arrange for the tree to be harvested and transported to Lambeau Field on Tuesday, Nov. 14. The owner of the selected tree will receive four tickets to the Packers-Bears game, Dec. 25.
The tree selected for last year’s event was submitted by Susan Joppe, of Green Bay, who submitted a 40-foot spruce evergreen. In recognition of providing the three for the event, Joppe received four tickets to a 2010 Packers game.
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.
