What is the Christmas Lite Show?
West Michigan's largest, animated, drive-thru light show, which is now celebrating its 22nd year of entertaining people of all ages.
Where is it?
The event is located at Fifth Third Ballpark, home of the West Michigan Whitecaps, exit 91, off US 131.
How long is it?
Enjoy nearly two miles, over a million lights, animated displays, lighted tunnels, and more. On select evenings, you can stop at the Santa house, and give him your wish list!
Who started it?
This family-oriented event was started by Bill Schrader. With the help of his family, it has grown, year after year, to become a tradition for many.
As a veteran himself, having served 28 yrs in the Army, Bill is a generous supporter of the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans and contributes a portion of the light show proceeds to this cause.
What else should I know?
New for this year is an extended trail, an addition of 10,000 lights, a few new and updated displays, and more.
Santa House Hours: 6-9pm on Nov 30-Dec 2, Dec 7-9, Dec 14-23rd
