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.
