The Meadow Brook estate will shine a little brighter this holiday season during “Holiday Lights and Winter Nights.” For these special nights guests will experience the National Historic Landmark trimmed in lights. The evening outdoor activities include: bonfires, strolling carolers, a cash bar featuring warm holiday drinks and S’mores kits will be available for purchase. Self-guided tours of the house and playhouses will also be available until 8:00 p.m. during “Holiday Lights and Winter Nights.”

New this year, bring the whole family to the Great Estate during Meadow Brook’s Family Festivities. On December 21, 22, and 23, Santa Claus himself will be at The Hall for great photo opportunities and lots of family fun.
