Santa Claus is coming to town! More specifically, multiple towns in the Metro Detroit area over the next couple weeks. While there are plenty of photo opportunities, one of the most popular activities for families is dining with Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick. Metro Detroit has plenty of events taking place leading up to the Christmas holiday, and here are five that will have the whole family get in the holiday spirit.

The always family-friendly Greenfield Village will be hosting its Holiday Nights series over the next few weeks, with a few “Supper with Santa” events taking place.
