It's Time to Sparkle in Royal Oak
The annual downtown holiday tree lighting doesn't kick off until Thursday, but many Royal Oak businesses are already glowing.
This year's tree lighting ceremony at the Royal Oak Farmers Market, set for 6:15 p.m. Thursday, will be an extravaganza.
Not only will visitors hear carolers, enjoy a special performance by the Salvation Army Band and the Royal Oak Children's Choir – topped off with an appearance by the Jolly Old Elf himself – they can also buy unique holiday presents at the Holiday Magic Marketplace from 4-8 p.m.
In the meantime, you don't have to wait for Santa Claus to pull the switch to brighten your night. A walk around downtown reveals several restaurants and shops are sporting a holiday glow.
