What's On This Weekend: Dec 23-25

All is quiet in Southwest Michigan. Winter has descended upon us, Christmas Eve and Hanukkah are less than 24 hours away, and cozy activities like baking cookies, curling up by the fire and constructing epic blanket forts have never sounded better. Spend your weekend with loved ones, doing what you love to do.

We wish you the happiest of holidays.


  • Drop the kids off at the Holland Arts Council to make and wrap gifts while you do some shopping

  • Stroll under the holiday lights at Binder Park Zoo, meet Santa and enjoy free carousel rides, train rides, animal meet-and-greets, holiday stories and more (last day!)

  • Glimpse a live display of the first Christmas at the Critter Barn

  • Find Santa's house during its temporary relocation from the North Pole to downtown St Joseph

  • Challenge your friends to an indoor/outdoor scavenger hunt at the Outdoor Discovery Center in Holland (through Dec 31)

  • Frolic in the family-friendly pools at Holland Aquatic Center and enjoy BOGO admission


  • Make sure jolly old St Nick knows your holiday wishes at Home & Co in Holland (through Christmas Eve)

  • Lace up your skates at the South Haven Ice Rink, where open skating runs from 11 am to 5 pm


  • Spend the afternoon on the hills of Swiss Valley ski resorts in Jones

  • Head to your nearest state park for a little outdoor exploration (and maybe a new family tradition)
