Annual Tree Lighting Celebration Returns To Canton’s Summit on The Park

Kick off the holiday season with Canton’s annual Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration which will be held on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, at the Summit on the Park, located at 46000 Summit Parkway, Canton, MI, 48188.


Join in the free festivities from 6:00-8:30 p.m., as Santa and his reindeer make a special stop in Canton. Starting outside at 6:00 p.m., enjoy holiday carols, watch Santa’s arrival, and countdown to the official lighting of the tree, which will be held outside the Summit’s Banquet Center Entrance.  Additional outside activities include up-close and personal visits with real live reindeer, as well as ice sculpting demonstrations.  Area residents are encouraged to dress warmly and bring the family to this fun, festive event!


Indoor activities for children include: free henna, seasonal crafts areas, and pictures with Santa.  Light refreshments will also be provided inside by Busch’s Fresh Food Market. Additional indoor activities include ‘Holidays Around the World,’ where children can learn about special traditions and festivities celebrated in a variety of different countries.  Live entertainment will be on hand to perform holiday tunes, including Dodson Elementary School Choir.  In addition, children’s entertainer Guy Louis will be performing interactive multicultural holiday songs, thanks to the generous support of the Michigan Humanities Council.


Alexis Lubecki, Miss Michigan Teen USA 2019 and Canton resident, will also be making a special appearance during the event. 


This year’s event is sponsored, in part, by American 1 Credit Union; Atchinson Ford; Busch’s Fresh Food Market; Canton Sweetwaters Coffee and Tea; Central City Dance; Community Financial; Glen Abbey; The Goddard School for Early Childhood Development; TIAA Bank, and Today’s Ortho.
