Sundance Square plans to open Christmas season on Nov. 17

🕐 1 min read

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. At least it will on Nov. 12.

Sundance Square will hoist a 56-foot blue spruce Christmas tree from Traverse, Michigan off a flatbed truck where it will be placed in the center of the now five-year old plaza on Monday, November 12.

Once in place, a team of Sundance Square Elves will spend the remainder of the week decorating the tree. Nearly 6,500 Christmas tree LED lights will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy from Green Mountain Energy Company.

The official tree lighting ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 17 with the festivities beginning at 6 p.m. The evening will be filled with an official countdown to the tree lighting, live music, a visit with Santa Claus, as well as photo opportunities throughout the plaza. Sundance Square is expecting approximately 1.2 million visitors during the holiday season beginning with the tree lighting and continuing through New Year’s Day. After the holidays, the tree will be recycled and used for a Habitat for Humanity house to be built next spring.
