Bundle up, pack in and drive the family car through four miles of holiday light displays lining Hines Drive at the Wayne County Lightfest. This local tradition – and “the Midwest’s largest and longest light show” – is back for another year Nov. 19-Dec. 31, 2015.
When the sun goes down, the park shines bright with the light of 40-plus holiday-themed light displays. As you wind your way through the park’s illuminated path in your toasty warm car, gaze out at this magical spectacle sure to bring the family holiday cheer. Put on some seasonal tunes and have a singalong while you’re at it!
Plus, there’s a special treat in store for those who visit! Santa Claus himself will be at the Lightfest’s Santa Shelter each night Nov. 20-Dec. 23.
Another option: Skip the exercise and head to the grand opening celebration at 6 p.m. Nov. 19! You’ll get a sneak preview of this year’s display while you sip on refreshments, watch fireworks and listen to music.
Otherwise, enjoy the display daily Nov. 19-Dec. 31, with the exception of Christmas Day. Enter Wayne County Lightfest at 7651 Merriman Road, Westland, between Warren Road and Ann Arbor Trail. Admission is $5 per vehicle. Times are as follows:
