Each year, residents gather around the tree in Clawson Memorial Park and sing songs of the season as the annual tree lighting takes place. Santa Claus makes an appearance and has been known to bring along a reindeer a time or two for everyone to see. Refreshments are served and children will get a chance to share their ideas for presents from Santa's lap. It is a fun event for all and you can the City Calendar for more details as the season approaches.
The 2016 Tree Lighting Event will be held on Wednesday, November 30th at the Memorial Park adjacent to Blair Memorial Library. The event is sponsored by the Clawson/Troy Optimists Club in cooperation with the City of Clawson. Festivities will kick off with the singing of carols at 6:30pm and the tree lighting at 7:00pm. Santa will arrive via fire truck a little after 7:00pm. Refreshments will be served at Clawson City Hall Community Room after the tree lighting. Come join us in holiday spirit to kick off the season.
