Grand Rapids Tree Lighting and opening of Rosa Parks Circle

Grand Rapids had their tree lighting December 4 which also marked the opening of the Rosa Parks Ice Skating Rink for the season. It was a little cold but a nice family event in downtown Grand Rapids. Downtown was bustling with the tree lighting and the Grand Rapids Griffins hockey game. More on Rosa Parks Ice Skating, it is free to skate and only $1 for skate rentals. The tree is located next to the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM). For those of that do not know, the GRAM offers $5 admission for non members on Friday nights.
