It's one of the few events that are still on schedule to take place this Christmas.

If you're looking to get into the Christmas spirit but struggling to find stuff to do with the global pandemic, you might be in luck - it appears as though there will be a tree-lighting ceremony in downtown Flint at Brush Park on Thursday, December 3rd.

It's hosted by the What's Up Downtown project. According to the Facebook event page:

Join us in Downtown Flint for a TREEmendous evening full of family fun and holiday cheer!
