Supporting businesses and the community in working together to make Grand Ledge
a great place to live and do business
The Night Lights Christmas Parade, Tree Lighting and Festivities is THIS Friday December 6th! The Rotary Club is hosting a chili cookoff and Sun Theatre will be showing Shrek the Halls. Come early to head to the library with the kiddos to make a gingerbread house!
Starting around 5pm that night, we will be roasting marshmallows around a fire pit in Bridge Street Plaza. Several area churches will be entertaining us with Christmas Carols. Join us for some toasty fun and a front row seat as Mayor Thom Sowle flips the switch to turn the 2300 lights on our gorgeous tree this year!
Retired Grand Ledge High School Principal Jill Mangrum will be serving as our Grand Marshall as she leads the 70 groups scheduled to participate. Dress warm and get ready for a fun and festive evening in downtown Grand Ledge!
Here is our parade route for this year!
The Parade starts at the Grand Ledge Fire Department and heads south on Bridge Street.
It will end at the Sun Theatre where Santa will climb down the firetruck, hand out candy canes before the movie starts.
If you want to stay warm throughout the evening, come roast a marshmallow in Bridge Street Plaza or sample chili at Ledges Sweat Shop hosted by the Grand Ledge Rotary Club.
We will also be enjoying holiday carols in the plaza throughout the evening.
