Festival of Wreaths

The Muskegon Museum of Art’s annual holiday event, the Festival of Trees, is making some adjustments this year to spread the holiday spirit throughout downtown Muskegon. A new version of the event – Festival of Wreaths – is set up to be a wreath walk event that people can enjoy from the sidewalk or street any time between November 24th and December 6th. You can get a walking map with all of the wreath locations in either a printed or digital version to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the wreath locations.

The Christmas Lite Show is located at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park, where you’ll find nearly two miles of over a million lights, animated displays, lighted tunnels, and more. They sell tickets by the carload, and the light show will be open from November 25th through January 2nd.
