The Village of Rochester Hills Joins the Rainbow Connection to Make a Wish Come True

We've been working on putting up our holiday lights for over five weeks in anticipation of our Annual Tree Lighting Event this Friday, November 18.  Yes, even before Halloween we were putting up our lights ... and we are still working on it.  You can pull into the Village any day right now and find someone working on the lights; either up on a scaffold or around the trees on the grounds.  This week we start decorating our large tree which houses over 5,000 lights. 

Our entire Village will be turned on this Friday evening, showcasing more than 500,000 lights...all at once.  This is an event that you and your family won't want to miss.  And who gets to turn these lights on?  Will! 

On Saturday, October 29th, 2011, during the Village of Rochester Hills' Annual Spooktacular, the Adagio Dance Company performed Michael Jackson't Thriller in Festival Park.  Enjoy the show!

Here's the latest breakdown of the flash mob at the Village from Patch.com:  

"A mob of more than 50 people, all clad in white T-shirts, surprised shoppers at the Village Saturday afternoon when the started line dancing in the street next to the gazebo.
