KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Shoppers up early to take advantage of Black Friday deals in the Kalamazoo area might need a nap.

Especially if they want to take part in Friday's official City of Kalamazoo tree lighting ceremony in Bronson Park, set to begin at 7pm.

"We'll light up the entire park," Mayor Bobby Hopewell told WKZO's Lori Moore.

The Skeletone's will provide musical entertainment. Donations for hot chocolate in the park will benefit the YWCA of Greater Kalamazoo's Domestic Violence Shelter.

Santa and Mrs. Claus are expected, and will read "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" before visiting with children until 8pm.

Participants can donate non-perishable canned goods to benefit local food pantries, as well.
