Grand Rapids Christmas Events 2011

Christmas Time in Grand Rapids!

Grand Rapids Christmas Events Yes it’s coming! Well Thanksgiving in finally over, the Turkey has been cooked and eaten, waistbands have been let out, but now it is time to start putting up the Christmas decorations, lights and Christmas Trees. We are fortunate here in Grand Rapids that our community has so much to offer at this special time of year. It’s definitely my favorite time. Here are few locations where you can pick up your own tree.

One of the fun places on my to-do list is to take the family to visit Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. From November 22nd this year until January 8th, Meijer Gardens presents their Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World exhibit. With over forty international trees and displays and a new feature this year;  the redesign of the Diwali display honoring the Hindu Festival of Lights, along with the enhancement of Nativity displays including the new-to-the-exhibition Polish szopka.

There are many various activities in town and throughout the Grand Rapids area. From Theater, Ballet, Symphony and Live Music, parades, family events to photos with Santa, Christmas Lights and Tours and Church and Religious services and Fundraisers. has a comprehensive list of things to do in Grand Rapids.

Fifth Third Ball Park has a huge Christmas Light exhibit each year. Make sure to pack the kids in the car and head over to the Ball Park located on W. River Dr in Comstock Park for a drive thru experience with millions of lights.

Have a wonderful 2011 Holiday Season!
