A fun-filled evening for the family is planned for November 30th to kick off the holiday season in Rosa Parks Circle. A few of downtown’s most popular holiday events (the GRAM Tree Lighting, the opening of Rosa Parks Circle Ice Rink, and the free horse-drawn carriage rides) will be combined to make it into an event to truly kick off the holiday season in Grand Rapids.

A ceremony, scheduled to start at 5:30pm, will culminate with the lighting of the Holiday Tree on the Grand Rapids Arts Museum’s Wege Plaza.Art Museum Board President Mitchell Watt will welcome everyone to the ceremony and introduce the key participants. Then, Mayor George Heartwell will welcome the crowd, and announce the official opening of the Rosa Parks Circle Ice Rink. There will also be a special season-opening skating performance by figure skater Kimberly Scott. After that, GRAM Director and CEO Dana Friis-Hansen will pull the switch to light the tree! The ceremony will conclude at 5:45pm.

It’s free to attend the outdoor Tree Lighting Ceremony! Indoors, admission to GRAM is $5 after 5pm; free for Members. The Museum is open until 9pm.

(The ice rink will open to the public at 5:45pm on November 30th, weather permitting.)
