Enjoy the Christmas Lights in Downtown Grand Rapids

Downtown Grand Rapids is lit up and pretty spectacular this time of year! You can drive and see the lights, but even more fun is taking a short walk with your family.A popular spot is the lights along Monroe Center, from the Children’s Museum down to Rosa Parks Circle.

Here you’ll see the city’s majestic Christmas tree and happy holiday-goers ice skating at the Rosa Parks Circle rink.

Christmas light displays in downtown Grand Rapids include the massive Christmas tree.

Ice skating at Rosa Parks is really fun. They have skate rentals and also walkers for those just learning to skate.

Continue your Christmas lights experience with a walk down Pearl toward the Amway Grand Plaza. The JW Marriott is dazzling in blue and the riverwalk is pretty, too.

Cross the bridge and head over to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum to see more lights along the water. If the museum is open, you could even head in to see their holiday train display (admission required).

  1. We added Grandville UMC last week but it has not been posted yet (12-minute Light Show, 6,000 Lights). It premieres tonight (21/2) 6-8pm and runs 5-9pm through Jan 6. Thanks!

  2. 2 of the houses on this list we went to and they had no Christmas lights up. 1053 Otilla SE and 3704 Giddings SE. neither of those have any lights

  3. We drove past Impact church in Lowell multiple times on Sunday between 5:30-6:30 and there were no lights going. Seems they aren’t doing their show this year.

  4. The light display at 84 10 Mile Rd NE, Comstock Park, MI 49321 is amazing!!! So much to look at and beautifully done!

    No lights at 2460 Bristolwood Dr NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49544 (this one was not on the printed list, but was on the map)

    Also, not much to see at 2809 Valley Ave NW, Walker, MI 49544 (again, wasn’t on the printed list, but is still on the map)

    Thanks grkids- we always appreciate this list!!

  5. Please add 3245 34th st Grandville Mi to your list of Christmas lights. We have a nice traditional display with approximately 3500 lights when you add up all of the lights on the house, in the bushes throughout the yard and the figurines. We have submitted photos of our display requesting it be added to your list.
    Thank you

  9. The house you have listed in Ada moorings the addresses are flipped. The house with lights set to music is 974. The house with all the inflatables is 937

  10. My fam & I drove around and did 15 of the houses tonight! 🙂 Both 2633 Dixie Ave and 2024 Johanna Ave didn’t have anything. Mooring Drive and Whitburn Drive didn’t have much going on either. Also the Ada covered bridge was not lit up yet. Otherwise great listings! Thank you for putting this together!

  11. 198 West Ferney’s Ave in Clarksville is lit again this year after a couple of years with a much smaller display. It is bigger than before, with over 20,000 lights and lots of holiday “stuff” to see on a corner lot in town.. Lights will be on every night until after midnight through Dec 26 and until at least 10 PM through the New Year.

  12. I’d like to add 1959 Rondo St in Kentwood. I have a light show running synced to music and you can listen on the radio on 88.3 every night from 5pm to 10pm.

  13. Woodhill Ct in Wyoming ( 52nd and Burlingame) has a couple good houses across from each other…big inflatables.

  14. John in Clarksville

    Our alligator didn’t get mentioned this year. Gonna have to step up our game! Look for us to do things bigger and better next year….

  16. You can remove the house on Eldora Ct. in Byron Center – the house has been under new ownership for at least a few years and there is no longer a display there.

  17. Hi! Under the NE Grand Rapids list, you can remove the house on the corner of Pine Meadows & Blanca (Sierra Estates). 🙂 We bought that house this spring and while we enjoy decorating for Christmas, it’s not even close to the extent that the former owners decorated it. Thank you!

  18. Hi GR Kids team,
