Heritage Holidays at Wolcott Mill Historic Center in Ray Township

'Tis the season for family fun in southeast Michigan – especially when Wolcott Mill Metropark holds its annual event, Dec. 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16, 2017.

Lights, trees, ornaments – and maybe even snow! – decorate the Wolcott Mill Historic Center at the Wolcott Mill Metropark for Heritage Holidays, running Dec. 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16, 2017.

This annual event in Ray Township features holiday fun for the kids. They can play with old-school wooden toys, check out the Model T Dump Truck, which will be on display in the Wolcott Mill Car Club’s decorated car barn, and more. Plus, Santa plans to make a visit at the event, so don’t miss out on seeing him. He’ll be happy to learn about your kids’ Christmas wishes!

Families can snap a photo with beautiful Clydesdale horses or take a horse-drawn wagon ride, too. Kramer, a mini horse, will be attending the event, too, to hang out with a donkey named Baron. Be sure to stop by and see these two, as well!

Feeling hungry? Purchase tasty food available as you stop to grab a few gifts. Sip on a nice cup of hot chocolate or mulled cider sitting by one of the two bonfires. And definitely don’t forget to make some s’mores.

From 6 to 9 p.m.Dec. 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16, 2017, let the cold winter season bring the warm holiday spirit. Admission is $5 per person. There’s also a $10 vehicle entry fee.
