The 39th Annual Fantasy of Lights event will kick off in Downtown Howell the day after Thanksgiving, featuring a wide range of activities for the whole family. Festivities begin at 3 pm on State Street and include live entertainment, letter-writing to Santa, children's craft activities, delectable food truck options, and even a chance to meet live reindeer. Participants can enter to join a 1-mile walk or run in the Fantasy 5k (registration is required) with a costume contest that will set a festive tone for the evening. The highlight of the event will be the breathtaking lighted parade, which will illuminate Grand River.
This year's theme for the Fantasy of Lights Parade is "Tunes and Toons," and float entries are encouraged to decorate their float with their favorite Christmas songs or cartoons. Clark Gill, the Grand Marshal, will lead this colorful procession, adding his unique touch to the already enchanting evening.
We are proud to have Cobb-Hall Insurance once again as the presenting sponsor of this year's event, contributing to the magic of the 39th Annual Fantasy of Lights Parade in Howell. The Fantasy of Lights Parade has been a cherished tradition in Howell for nearly four decades, and this year's celebration promises to be a heartwarming experience for all ages. Join us in welcoming Grand Marshal Clark Gill and celebrate the joy of the holiday season at this remarkable event.
