I'm going to be heading to the Tri-City area for this coming weekend (Dec 11-14) and was thinking about driving around looking at the Christmas lights. Does anyone think it's too early to do this? Would I be better off going to surrounding towns (Freeland, the other tri-cites, Frankenmuth, Vassar, etc)? I' willing to drive 20 minutes or so out of Saginaw to check them out. I can imagine Frankenmuth is all decked out by now, so I may head in that direction, but if I can see some good ones in Saginaw, I'd rather stay there. I know the areas to avoid after dark, but are there any recommended areas to check out for the lights? Thanks

Frankemuth is always decorated. THe Saginaw City Hall. The Water works. Bay City has this drive through thing that you pay and that is pretty. The Saginaw News at some point will run a story where the best lights are. The Court house has them to.

I am not 100% sure but, I think Bay City canceled the Festival of Lights. Lack of funds.

Bay City did cancel the festival of lights so don't go there. I don't know specific areas of Saginaw that are good. Frankenmuth is a sure thing...just head for the downtown area.

thanks for the info so far! any other areas I should know about? certain neighorhoods or anything? I know some places go all out with the decor, but some don't hardly do anything. I just dont want to waste my time driving around not seeing anything, when three blocks over I'd see something cool . I'll check out those areas mentioned though for sure!

there is a really nice display on Freeland Rd. just East of Midland. It has music that accompanies the lights as they change. I could sit there for hours watching it. You should definitely check that one out.

Do they still light up the waterworks building in Saginaw? It's been a few years since we've been by there.
