The Grinch Takes Over

Oh, The Who-Manity!

Get ready for a Grinch-tastic takeover at our Holiday Open House on Saturday, December 14. The Grinch is in charge this year, bringing a touch of holiday mischief to our annual festivities. Capture a memorable photo with Santa Claus himself, and enjoy a roaring bonfire, artsy holiday crafts, cozy movie time, shopping specials, live entertainment, and delicious holiday treats.

Then head up to the Lights In The Sky experience at SkyBridge Michigan, featuring 150,000 twinkle lights. Don't miss the chance to sip Cocoa with The Grinch – you won't want to miss his mischievous charm

Lunch with Santa | Noon - 2pm 

Holiday Open House weekend wouldn't be complete without a visit from the big man himself. From noon-2pm on Saturday, December 14, you are invited to Lunch with Santa. Bring your little ones and enjoy a delicious meal while creating unforgettable memories with the jolly old man in the red suit.
Plus, don't miss Photos with Santa in the Mountain Grand Lodge and Spa lobby from 3 - 5pm.

Meet The Grinch | 5 - 8pm 

Get up close and personal with the Grinch! Step into Whoville and capture the holiday spirit with an unforgettable photo opportunity alongside this iconic character. He might even strike a classic Grinch pose or two! But that's not all – you can also cozy up with the Grinch over a cup of steaming hot cocoa. Share your holiday wishes, swap stories about your favorite Grinchy pranks, and maybe even convince him to join in on a little holiday mischief.
