I know I'm a lot older now, but i do not remember any sort of celebration of this kind when i was growing up there. I know there are a lot more year round people now, and I'm glad to see this, but i wish i had those memories of my home town.

Will have to stay one time for This! Want to experience everything the island has to offer ❤

Be prettier with snow

Anytime on Mackinac is wonderful

Perfect.

Doesn't look like Christmas without snow and next few weeks don't look too promising.

Thank you for sharing the Tree in the middle of popular street. Enjoyed seeing it lit from Cam Video in past years

I think that snowmobile is waiting for some snow!

Is the snowmobile waiting for snow? Lol

Sounds great but sadly I can't make it.

Is there a tree in the Grand Hotel, as the old song goes?

December is fast approaching . I can’t wait to see the tree lite!!😊

Wonderful Picture. I hope we get to see it all lit UP in person someday. Thanks for all the posts.
