Holiday Glow

Friday, December 7, 2018

The Royal Oak Holiday Glow will feature traditional holiday activities like photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, live reindeer, horse drawn carriage rides, letters to Santa and caroling. A warming tent on Fifth Ave will house a Winter Market, hot beverages, bar and music. There will be live ice carvings each day of a life size sleigh and reindeer. Massive hot-air balloons will peek above the treetops and buildings in Downtown Royal Oak. Come gather to see the balloons glow, like large holiday bulbs and illuminate the sky. The pilots will welcome children to look inside the baskets and pull the rope to the burners. At the end of the night, the pilots will host a synchronize flicker event that will leave everyone in awe. * Weather permitting. If the winds are too strong for the hot air balloons, there will be a Torch of Fire event.
