WESTLAKE: Crocker Park’s annual tree lighting returns with Grinchmas twist

Crocker Park has had its 50-foot tree since 2004 and has held a Tree Lighting event every year since.

Ho Ho oh no — the Grinch is coming to Crocker Park! On Saturday, the green Christmas-stealing menace will make his season-long debut at Crocker Park. He will be followed by the Whos from Whoville, characters from Frozen, and — of course — Santa! The jolly old elf will help ring in Crocker’s official tree lighting with a Christmas tree that’s 50-feet-high — too tall for even the Grinch to steal!

“At 8 o’clock when we turn the tree on, we’re also turning on all the holiday lights throughout the whole park,” said Vice President of Marketing for Stark Enterprises, Stacie Schmidt. “The whole park is dark and then it’s just bright and beautiful all at once.”
