If you’re planning to go to Light Up Lakewood tomorrow, Dec. 5, Whole Foods Market Lakewood invites you to make a day of it and pre-party with them before the big event.

Enjoy some food, drinks, and fun before the lighting. The pre-party will be held from 4-7 p.m. in the Whole Foods parking lot at 2118 Abrams. They will be serving up burgers, beer, wine, and hot cocoa on their patio (weather permitting) with live music by Rafe Grigar. There will also be a magic show and a glitter tattoo artist.

Then gather with neighbors to celebrate the 12th annual Light Up Lakewood from 6-9 p.m. in Lakewood Shopping Center parking lot at Gaston and Abrams. The tree lighting is at 7 p.m. There also will be activities such as a petting zoo, face painting, an obstacle course and performances.
