Looking for the best way to get into the Christmas spirit the weekend after Thanksgiving? Check out the 61st annual Santaland Parade in Garden City November 26th at 10am. The Grand Marshall this year is Miss Michigan Melissa Beyrand!

Find a seat along Middlebelt Road between Garden City High School (at Maplewood) to Ford Rd and cozy up for this year’s Santaland Parade. This year’s theme is ‘to the North Pole and beyond’ and community floats will be decorated, local bands and entertainment will participate and – of course – the big man himself.

Too cold to bring the kids out? Check out Santaland’s Facebook Page! They live stream the parade so you can even watch from the comfort of your own home. 

Looking for something to do after the Parade? Check out Garden City Park, Yo Yo’s Funland, or Playmania!
