Tree Lighting Ceremony

Join the Orion Area Chamber of Commerce and the Lake Orion Downtown Development Authority on Saturday, November 25th, starting at 5:30 pm, as we kick off the holiday season with a tree lighting ceremony at the Gazebo in Children’s Park.

Bring the kids to see Mrs. Claus, who is bringing a special guest from the North Pole – one of Santa’s reindeer friends!

Purchase special ornament kits made by the elves at Knude Products, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Shop with a Hero program. Write the name of your personal hero on a handmade wooden ornament, and place on the community tree prior to the lighting. Ornament kits are $10.00 and can be purchased at Knude Products and other retailers. Keep a few, hang a few, and be your own hero to a local kid!
