L&P Kicks-Off its 100th Year Anniversary
2012 marks the 100-year anniversary for Traverse City Light & Power. L&P takes pride in being the city’s publicly-owned electric provider and for the last 100 years, partnering with Traverse City to power its economic progress, its communities and its industries.
L&P is kicking off its centennial year at the annual Santa’s Arrival, Tree Lighting and Holiday Open House in downtown Traverse City on Friday, December 2.
The event is downtown Traverse City’s offi cial kick-off to the holiday season. Hosted by the
Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and Downtown Traverse City Association (DTCA), the event also includes horse and carriage rides, caroling and live entertainment with a steel drum band at the corner of Cass and Front throughout the evening.
In addition to the evening’s events, L&P will partner with the DDA and DTCA to provide new, energy efficient light emitting diode (LED) holiday lights for the tree lighting event. The new lights are 98% more efficient than the current holiday lights being used, making the holidays in downtown Traverse City even brighter.
L&P will be providing holiday balloons to all children attending the event. In addition, the following is tentatively planned:
Music at the corner of Cass and Front 5 p.m.
Community Caroling with the Interlochen Arts Academy Chamber Choir 5:45 p.m.
