Tree Lighting Ceremony

 

Detroit holds a annual tree lighting ceremony at Campus Martius this year presented by DTE Energy. A huge 60 ft tree is dressed in colorful ornaments and over 19k lights aluminate the park in front of thousands of Detroiters.

The tree lighting kicks off the beginning of the annual Quicken Loans Season of Winter Magic. A family friendly event with ice skating, horse-drawn carriage rides, kidz zone, visit with santa, street performances, good food, and live music.

Walking up to Campus Martius park you realize right away you should had come really early if you wanted a close spot to view the festivities. The buildings down woodward avenue are covered in christmas lights illuminating people path to the event. The crowd was more then impressive this year. The cold weather didn’t keep many people away from enjoying all the outdoor activities which held a large crowd till they closed down.

For those who wanted to stay warm the popular local band the Killer Flamingos closed out the tent next to Campus Martius.  http://www.killerflamingos.com
