An impressive light display is coming to Livonia’s Greenmead Historic Village this December. The Greenmead Holiday Lights will also feature a very special guest for the kids, Santa Claus!
That’s right, the man in the red suit will see children on the porch of the Alexander Blue House at Greenmead from 5-8 p.m. on Saturdays, December 5, 12, and 19, and Sundays, December 6, 13, and 20. Sources are telling us St. Nick will be accompanied by a posse of lights on the Alexander Blue house, trees, and other displays around it.
Greenmead Historic Village is located on Newburgh Road, south of Eight Mile Road. The display plans to light up every other evening for the next several weeks this holiday season.
Admission and parking are free for the Holiday Lights and Santa Photos program organized by Livonia Parks and Recreation and the Livonia Chamber of Commerce. If weather permits, a skating pond will be installed next to the Alexander Blue House. Planners are looking to keep the holiday lights and skating available into January.
Fausone Bohn, LLP is proud to be a sponsor of this great event, we are also joined by AlphaUSA, Embassy Title Agency, OHM Advisors, GFL Environmental, Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches, Masco Corp., Financial and Portfolio, Greener Method Cleaning and Restoration, Community Choice Credit Union, The UPS Store (5 Mile and Newburgh), Livonia Community Foundation, and D&B Landscaping.
Dan West, president of the Livonia Chamber of Commerce, said the light display and Santa Claus visit at the Alexander Blue House is the first step to a larger vision to convert all of Greenmead into a Christmas Village with a larger light display, food and drink, and other activities.
“Our plan is to create a Livonia version of the Campus Martius holiday displays in downtown Detroit,” West said. “We believe this will give our city an exciting new way to celebrate the holidays, create a new regional attraction, and generate more attention and fundraising for Greenmead.”
