Holiday Events in MI Great Lakes Bay

Christmas spirit is in the air! If you are planning your trip to MI Great Lakes Bay, make sure to join some of the holiday events coming up this Friday and next week! 

Bring the entire family to Chesaning to enjoy the festive atmosphere. The Chesaning Christmas Candlelight Walk will take place this Friday, come and enjoy free horse-drawn carriage rides, Gingerbread House Walk, and more. Meanwhile, the Santa's Village in Chesaning will be open on November 24 – 25, and Saturday's and Sunday's December 1 through December 16, and don’t forget to book your Polar Express train ride while visiting there! 

Speaking of Christmas, it is no way not to mention the Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth (since there’s literally Christmas time throughout the year:]). From November 23 to December 23, Santa will visit Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland. Please note that many children wish to see Santa on Saturdays and Sundays. Guests should anticipate a wait.
