Enjoy the Perfect HoliDAY Out!

By: Michael Fossbakk | December 9, 2012

During the winter Michigan months, it is easy to give into the temptation of cocooning yourself in blankets on the couch over the weekend. However, if the weather outside is frightful but you are still looking for something delightful, the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor has the answer for you! They will be hosting their Holiday Classic Film Series every Sunday in December.

You can avoid the bitter weather while enjoying a screening of one of the classic, heartfelt holiday films. The following is the schedule of films that will be shown at the theater:

Saturday, December 1 at 1:30 pm: Meet Me in St. Louis

Sunday, December 9 at 1:30 pm: Elf

Sunday, December 16 at 1:30 pm: Miracle on 34th Street

Sunday, December 23, at 1:30: It’s a Wonderful Life

After the film ends, why not extend your perfect holiday outing by taking in one of the spectacular light displays around the area?

If you are heading north, you can hit what is arguably the best lights display in Lower Michigan at Christmas at Crossroads Village. With a decked out train ride and over 600,000 lights, this is truly a winter wonderland. For pricing and days and hours of operation, please visit www.geneseecountyparks.org.

If you are heading east, the city of Rochester will be having their 6th annual Big Bright Light Show. The entire city is now lit up with over 1.5 million lights! Most stores will be open until 9pm, so you can knock out some of your holiday shopping as well! For more information, please visit www.downtownrochestermi.com.

If you are heading south, The Wayne County Lightfest is the midwest’s longest drive-through holiday light display, going on for 4 miles! The display started on November 15, 2012. For more information, please visit waynecounty.com.
