Fantasy of Lights

The Howell Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation Fantasy of Lights Event begins at 7 p.m. on the Friday after Thanksgiving

Don’t miss this traditional start of the Holiday Season in the Howell area!

This spectacular nighttime event will have a different look this year to comply with social distancing.

Two of Howell’s special event powerhouses are joining forces for a memorable and magical experience at Scofield Park this holiday season. Opening the Friday after Thanksgiving, The Howell Chamber of Commerce Foundation will present Fantasy of Lights Weekend in Partnership with the Howell Parks and Recreation Authority’s ‘Holiday in the Park. This year’s event will include a theme of ‘Around the World’ and will highlight holiday experiences from across the globe. This drive through event will kick-off with Fantasy of Lights weekend featuring an extra special display of lights and scenes installed by Santa’s Light Crew as well as community organizations. Float builders will be asked to create stationary displays to stay in the park throughout the month-long program. During Fantasy of Lights weekend a different Grand Marshal will be honored each day of the event, Santa will be accepting letters from children, and various family friendly activities will take place downtown following your drive through experience. The Howell Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation will also be hosting a virtual Fantasy Fun Run. Run Routes will be posted for registered runners.
