FLINT, MI — Mayor Karen Weaver and Flint City officials will help usher in the holiday season at Flint City Hall Friday, December 1, 2017 with a Tree Lighting/Holiday Kick-Off event. In addition to honoring local police and firefighters with trees lit with blue and red lights, there will be a tree lit with clear/white lights to represent unity and peace.

A variety of community groups, organizations, and retailers have signed to help with the event including  Flint Northwestern High School band and majorettes who kick off the celebration in front of City Hall. Members of local community choir “Cho’Zen” and Jerome Threlkeld will lead the crowd in singing a medley of carols.

Once the tree lighting is complete, everyone will be invited into the lobby of City Hall for free refreshments including hot chocolate provided by Walli’s Family Restaurant, coffee and juice provided by McDonald’s on Dort Highway. There will also be desserts provided by Best Practices Consulting Services, Meijer, and Sam’s Club. The Home Depot has also donated holiday-themed toy building kits for children who attend.
