A spectacular celebration …
Step back in time to one of Michigan’s most unique holiday celebrations.
An entire weekend of excitement including the Victorian Sleighbell Parade with horse-drawn entries, bagpipers, reindeer and carolers elegantly dressed in Victorian attire. The highlights of the parade are draft horses pulling a 30-foot Christmas tree down River Street followed by a beautiful display of luminaries, caroling and the lighting of the tree.
Manistee’s Victorian Sleighbell Parade and Old Christmas Weekend is filled with charming, Victorian-inspired events including the Festival of Trees, craft bazaar, 5K race and more.
It’s an entire weekend of nostalgia and old-fashioned fun.
The 34th annual Victorian Sleighbell Parade is at 5: 30 p.m. Dec. 2, 2023.
