Cascade Township Invites Community to Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony

All-ages Event Nov. 27 Will Include Carolers and a Visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus
Cascade Township, Michigan, Nov. 17, 2022 – The Cascade Historical Society, in partnership with Cascade Township and the Township’s Downtown Development Authority, is inviting community members of all ages to its annual holiday tree lighting ceremony Sunday, Nov. 27.
The festivities will begin at 5 p.m. with a tree lighting outside at the Cascade Historical Museum, 2839 Thornapple River Drive SE. The free event also will feature a musical performance by The Original Dickens Carolers, giveaways for children and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
The lighting of the 14-foot tree will take place in the museum’s gardens. A second 16-foot tree
at the intersection of Old 28th Street SE and Cascade Road and the museum’s rooftop also will be lit for the holidays.
“The annual tree lighting ceremony is a great way for friends and neighbors of all ages to meet Santa early, enjoy some joyous caroling and spread the wonderful holiday cheer,” Cascade Township Economic Development Director Sandra Korhorn said. “We had a fantastic turnout last year and look forward to once again kicking off the holidays with the community.”
After arriving by a Cascade fire truck, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be stationed inside the museum for visits. There is no charge for visits or photos with them.
