One of my favorite things during the Christmas season is to visit the Wayne County Lightfest, a 4 1/2 mile magical drive through the holiday light displays on Edward Hines Drive.
This year marks the 27th year for the Wayne County Lightfest, which lights up Hines Drive in the western suburbs of Detroit, Michigan from Westland to Dearborn Heights.
The Lightfest features 47 giant light displays with more than one million lights.
While the COVID pandemic restricted having hot chocolate and doughnuts at the end of the drive, watching the green-lit frogs jumping through the air, Santa’s sleigh traveling up the hill, and the beautiful multicolored dinosaurs in the Time Tunnel was a fantastic way to enjoy a chilly, winter night in a warm car.
Did you know our Wayne County Lightfest is the Midwest’s largest and longest light show?
My two favorite light displays at the Lightfest: the Time Tunnel and Santa’s sleigh.
If you’re in the southeast Michigan area, the Lightfest continues Wednesday through Saturday until December 31, 2020, from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. Cost is $5.00/vehicle.
Be prepared for a wait, a lot of families are looking for safe holiday activities during COVID restrictions.
