(Chelsea Update would like to thank Terris Ahrens for the information in this story.)
In lieu of the Hometown Holiday Parade, the City of Chelsea is allowing organizers to decorate the light poles downtown as well as a limited number of spaces for a small Festival of Trees in Palmer Commons.
The committee is hoping this addition will help to bring some joy, decorations and interest to the downtown this holiday season. And the Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce will be offering prizes for these events. There will be a $50 People’s Choice and a $50 Chamber Choice Prize for the light poles and a $50 People’s Choice for the Festival of Trees.
Please review details, rules, guidelines and registration form here.
If you are interested, please complete the registration form online before all the spaces are gone. And, to see some of the other events happening in Chelsea, please go to https://chelseamich.com/hometown-holiday/
