Traverse City Sets Up Christmas Tree Downtown

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in downtown Traverse City.

The city’s Christmas tree made its way to the traditional spot at Cass and Front Street Monday morning.

It was set up by Team Elmers and Traverse City Parks and Recreation. This is all in preparation for the tree lighting and Santa’s arrival Saturday.

“Now we’ve got the star up and getting ready to put lights on,” Phillip Jewell from Traverse City Parks and Recreation said. “It’s amazing, it’s great to be a part of a local tradition. It’s just the feeling of Christmas.”

Festivities are free to the public and begin at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in downtown Traverse City.
