Light Up the Night/Tree Lighting 2021

Section Menu

Mark your calendars for the Light Up the Night/Tree Lighting beginning on Friday, December 3, 2021.
Plainwell has stepped up to provide an evening of delight in celebrating the holiday season and traditional tree lighting to allow for social distancing and COVID Guidelines in 2020.  We created a combination of our Tree Lighting, Parade and Candy Cane hunt into one event. People will be able to stroll through our downtown, the Merry Mile, as if a parade were standing still;  Christmas Cards in the park, pre-packaged sugar cookies will be handed out, candy canes will be placed on the tree and around downtown for the kids to find and our Mayor will light the tree at somepoint on Friday night. We have so many community organizations and our downtown merchants participating during the entire month to make it festive, flowing, and safe.  

2020 Sponsors: Michigan Pallet, Darby Metal Treating, Inc., Ace Hardware, TMD, FBN, Perfect Image, Cornell & Associates, Plainwell Kayak Company, Elle Salon, Downtown Merchant Group, Beyond Staging, Cutn' Loose, Passiflora, Faithway Church, Ransom District Library and City of Plainwell.
