Downtown Berkley area
The 14th annual parade takes place in downtown Berkley as it travels along 12 Mile Road from Bacon Street to City Hall. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and a doughnut at the tree lighting ceremony right after the parade and make sure to visit Santa in the Gazebo in front of City Hall. Afterward, treat the family to a horse-drawn carriage ride through decorated neighborhood streets.
Arrive early so the kids can enjoy a petting zoo and free pony rides from 1-4 p.m. at the corner of 12 Mile Road and Tyler, sponsored by DTE Energy. And be sure to visit the local merchants for some holiday shopping throughout the day.
