Packers seek tree for annual Festival of Lights event at Lambeau Field
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Green Bay Packers and Festival Foods are set to host the 14th annual Festival of Lights at Lambeau Field on Saturday, Dec. 7, and the Packers are again seeking assistance in finding a tree.
Anyone from Wisconsin or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan who has a 40-50 foot evergreen tree and wants to donate it to the event is asked to submit a proposal, in 100 words or less, on why their tree should be chosen and displayed at Lambeau through the holiday season.
Proposals should include a photo of the tree, and can be submitted through Wednesday, Nov. 6.
The proposal and photo can be submitted online here.
The Packers will arrange for the tree to be harvested and transported to Lambeau Field on Monday, Dec. 2, and the owner of the selected tree will receive four tickets to the Packers-Bears game on Dec. 15.
The annual Festival of Lights event will be free to the public and take place in the Lambeau Field Atrium, featuring cookie decorating, holiday movies and cartoons, holiday card-making, photo opportunities with Santa Claus and holiday music. Later, the event will move out onto Harlan Plaza for the formal lighting of the tree.
Volunteers will also be collecting toys and donations for Toys for Tots. Families are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys to help families in need.
