Light It Up!
Nov. 19, 2022
Even though it’s the week of Thanksgiving, we’ve already been hearing Christmas tunes on the radio and spotting red and green displays in just about every store. If you’re still waiting to get in the Christmas spirit, then you’ll soon have your pick of small town spots to find your inner Cindy Lou Who. Here are just a few of the festivities planned this week. Wednesday, Nov. 23, is the Walloon Lake Village Lighting (5pm). Friday, Nov. 25, has several events, like Holly Jolly Boyne (Boyne City, 5pm); Light Up Cedar (5pm); and Light Up Leland for the Holidays (6pm). Also Friday, Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville hosts the First Light and Holiday Trail celebrations, where Santa helps the resort get twinkly at 5pm and you enjoy live music, horse-drawn surrey rides, retail specials, and even a game of outdoor laser tag. Finally, Saturday, Nov. 26, check out the Light Up the Night Holiday Parade (Petoskey, 5pm); Harbor Springs Tree Lighting (6pm); Holiday in the Village (Suttons Bay, all day); and Northport Tree Lighting (6pm).
