‘Tis the season! Macomb County municipalities are getting in the holiday spirit, hosting a variety of family-fun activities. Be sure to visit our Make Macomb Your Home website for a complete list of these happenings. Below is a blog about the event that kicks off the local holiday season, the tree lighting ceremony at The Mall at Partridge Creek. We hope to see you at one of these events!

partridgeThis weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 7 and 8, showcases a key holiday event in Macomb County, The Mall at Partridge Creek’s Tree Lighting Celebration Weekend. It is the perfect way to kick off the season and get in the holiday spirit. This complimentary event is presented by the PANDORA store at The Mall of Partridge Creek, featuring two days of festive fun all leading up to the arrival of Santa at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. Santa lights up the night with our 42-foot tree in Center Court and the 500,000 plus LED holiday lights throughout the mall, creating a sparkling winter wonderland. In our ninth year, we have added more live music and new family activities to include face painting, a magic show and story time with Mrs. Claus. Additionally, customers will enjoy eating complimentary cider and donuts, and children will have the opportunity to take pictures with Santa. We look forward to seeing you this weekend.
