Detroiters Flock to Mariner Park for Annual Christmas Tree Burn

January 13, 2014

Dozens of Detroiters flocked to Mariner Park on Saturday for one of the hottest (and we mean this literally) post-Christmas traditions around: The 2014 Detroit Christmas Tree Burn.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 30-some years, you know this event takes place every January and offers folks the chance to spread a little extra holiday cheer.

As always, city firefighters and EMT were on hand to keep things relatively under control.

Here’s a clip from this year’s tree lighting:

    We found a black lab (red collar – no tags) on Sunday Morning after the Tree Burn. Looking to find its owner. If anyone has any details, please let me know. Thanks. Tom
