Come join us on a sleigh ride through the beautiful countryside of west Michigan. The sleigh trails wind through our third generation family farm which consists of agricultural fields and a beautiful forest that features rolling hills, deep ravines, river bottom and thick swamp.

Celebrate the magic of the holiday season at the fifth annual ‘Winter Snow Fun’ Holiday Parade in Marquette’s Downtown District. Bundle up with friends and family as illuminated floats, tinsel-strewn trucks and colorful carolers transform Third Street into a magical scene from the North Pole.

To ensure that this year’s event is bigger and better than ever, the Saugatuck Douglas Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is putting out an open invitation to any local businesses or groups who might be interested in participating in this year’s Christmas Parade!

The Parade of Lights is happening on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2018 5:00 PM Main Street comes alive with the lights of the Holiday season. Watch the many colorful floats, marching groups, and listen to the seasonal songs as they meander down Main Street. Children will beam with excitement as they watch for Santa Claus and his sleigh.

Share some holiday spirit with furry and feathered folks at John Ball Zoo's annual "enrichment" day.

Grand Rapids Ballet Company, Grand Rapids Symphony and about 100 children fuse their talents to bring the classic story to life. After a sold out world premiere, The Nutcracker, re-imagined by Polar Express author Chris Van Allsburg, returns for two weekends at DeVos Performance Hall.

ROUTE: The parade route will start at the Post Office and proceed down Genesee Street. We will not be allowing floats INTO the RV Park this year as we had a major pile up last year.
