The holiday season is a time to spend time with loved ones and have fun with the whole family. At Blossom Children’s Center, we encourage parents and children to take dedicated time to spend with one another, and the holidays are a perfect time. We have a list of holiday events near Novi that you’ll want to add to your family event calendar.
- Farmington’s Riley Ice Rink
- Chanukah Wonderland
- Wayne County Lightfest
- Virtual Tree Lighting
With these fun holiday events, one visit could turn into an annual trip and be part of your family’s holiday tradition. If you live near or in the metro Detroit area, consider a visit to one of these holiday events. If you’d rather stay inside or are further away from the city of Novi, we’ve also included a virtual event that anyone can attend.
Farmington’s Riley Ice Rink
Ice skating is a traditional winter activity that allows the whole family to lace up their skates and hit the ice. Downtown Farmington Hills will be hosting a holiday skate rink on December 28, from 6–9 p.m. If you’re looking to beat the holiday rush, you can visit the Riley Ice Rink any day during its open hours found here.
Celebrate the Festival of Lights at Chanukah Wonderland in West Bloomfield. This event is hosted at Champps Americana and includes various children’s activities, including dreidel canvas art projects, a fry-a-latke station, and a Menorah Parade. With only a $5 admission fee, the Wonderland event is a fun, inexpensive way for the whole family to celebrate Hanukkah festivities.
Wayne County Lightfest
Pack up the kids in the car and go for a magical car ride at the Wayne County Lightfest. This experience offers five miles of light display that begins in Westland and ends in Dearborn Heights. Starting on Thanksgiving, this display is available until December 23, with only a $5.00 admission fee per vehicle. The Wayne County Lightfest is the perfect activity for families to enjoy in the evening while staying warm.
Virtual Tree Lighting
Participation for some holiday events this year may look different, but the spirit is the same. Without the presence of large crowds, you can still enjoy Novi’s tree lighting ceremony for a virtual viewing through social media. The virtual viewing will occur on December 4 at 5:15 p.m. Novi Mayor Bob Gatt will host the tree lighting ceremony. This virtual ceremony allows the community to join in on a holiday tradition from their own homes’ comfort and safety.
Whether you’re in-person or at-home, there are plenty of ways to get into the holiday spirit. You can get the whole family in the spirit of the virtual holiday tree lighting by baking Christmas cookies, decorating ornaments, or dressing in holiday pajamas for the viewing.
Taking Care at BBWC
Holiday events with family are just one way you can help to enrich your child’s life. At Blossom Children’s Center, we offer our specialized services for behavioral practices, including ABA therapy. Whether you live in Novi or another part of the state, take time to be with and care for the special little ones in your life this holiday season.
