GR, EGR & Comstock Park Christmas Lights Route

If you want to see the best Christmas lights in Grand Rapids, EGR & Comstock Park this is the route for you!

Start off with a sweet treat from Kilwins in East Grand Rapids – perhaps their peppermint ice cream waffle cone will be just the festive thing to kickstart your light tour.

This route includes a few bonus stops along the way that need to be timed just right – the fabulous Sticky Fingers Candy Shop closes at 6 pm most days, and the ice skating rink at Rosa Parks Circle accepts advance reservations.

This Christmas lights route includes several musical light shows and culminates with the granddaddy of them all, the Christmas Lite Show drive-through Christmas lights at the LMCU Ballpark.

PS – The last stop before the Lite Show is pretty great- you might just want to drive through it several times.
