Jingle All the Way to Manistee

Nov. 26, 2022

The town of Manistee is going into full holiday mode—and going back in time—this weekend. Friday, Dec. 2, the Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts will host the inaugural “1885 Come Alive” party, an authentic Victorian gathering done in the Christmas house party-style of the era ($35/ticket). Fashion, food, and even music will hark back 137 years to celebrate Manistee’s history. (Did you know it has more original Victorian-era homes, businesses, and churches than anywhere else in the state?) While in town, you can enjoy the Old Christmas Weekend festivities, which run Thursday through Sunday. Check out the Festival of the Trees (also at Ramsdell, $1 donation minimum), a Christmas Craft Bazaar on Saturday from 9am-4pm, the Jingle Bell Jog 5K, plenty of food and live music, and the Victorian Sleighbell Parade, a historical parade with horse-drawn carriages to boot. (With fireworks to follow!) Get all the details at manisteesleighbellparade.com.
