The evening with will feature a variety of family-friendly activities including music, sleigh rides, a visit from Santa Claus as well as the tree lighting ceremony.  Santa Claus is scheduled to arrive on a Marquette Township Firetruck at 6pm to light the tree, and the Marquette Redman Chorale will be performing selected holiday songs and after the lighting ceremony.

Due to reports that a “Grinch” may be on the loose in the Township, disrupting the Christmas Spirit and looking to prevent the tree lighting ceremony, Marquette County Sheriff Mike Lovelace will be patrolling the area.  Lovelace says he is committed to making sure the Grinch doesn’t run away with the Marquette Township Christmas Spirit!
