November 25 through Jaunuary 1, 24/7
Where: Kellogg Park
Walk of Trees
Due to the renovations of Kellogg Park, the location of trees around the park and how they will be presented are still being determined. The walk of trees is currently scheduled for the Friday after Thanksgiving through New Years.
This year’s Walk of Trees will be affected by the renovations to Kellogg Park. Until final plans and timelines are set for the park renovations, the Chamber of Commerce will not be able to determine the location of trees or how many trees will be available. Below are new procedures for purchasing trees. Due to the park renovations, the timelines and information below is only tentative and may be altered.
New procedures this year for purchasing trees:
For General Holiday Christmas Trees (not Memorial Trees): Members of the Plymouth Community Chamber of Commerce will have the first opportunity to purchase trees on a first come basis from September 14-20. After that date, all applications by non-members of the Chamber of Commerce and member businesses who apply after September 20th, will be put into a lottery for the remaining trees. The lottery for those remaining trees will be drawn on October 12. There will be at least 10 trees reserved for the drawing.
Memorial Trees for those who have passed: The Chamber receives many more requests for memorial trees than can be met. Chamber members will have an opportunity to reserve the first 5 memorial trees on a first come basis from September 14-20 for loved ones they wish to honor. To give others the opportunity to honor the memories of their loved ones who have passed, the Chamber will be putting the remaining trees into a lottery that will also be drawn on October 12. Those trees are located on the east end of Kellogg Park.
Another option for people who do not receive trees through the Memorial Tree lottery is to contact Compassionate Friends, a grief support group, who will have two trees again this year with ornaments to remember those who passed. If you want to participate with Compassionate Friends, they ask you contact them at 734-778-0800 or through their website at http://www.tcflivonia.org/contact_us.aspx prior to October 12 about having an ornament on their tree. You can still put in application for the tree lottery and reserve an ornament. Then if you receive a tree, you can just inform Compassionate Friends to give your ornament location to another family.
Applications for trees will be posted once details are confirmed for this year.
