One of the things we look forward to is driving downtown Kalamazoo at Christmas time and seeing Bronson Park all lit up.  Always makes me want to go to one of my favorite watering holes and get lit up myself.  Anyway, did you know there's a lot more than just lighting the lights in the park?  There's a whole Tree Lighting Ceremony.
