Every year The Village of Rochester Hills is glowing brighter than ever thanks to the over 350,000 lights they put up to celebrate the holidays. This year they'll do the same along with a variety of entertainment and activities for the whole family.

There's a lot of places that you won't find Santa this year but the Village of Rochester Hills isn't one of those places.

According to Mid-Michigan Now, There will be horse and carriage rides, reindeer, elves, live musical performances, a convenient online reservation system that allows for scheduled time slots to enjoy a socially-distanced visit with Santa, and much more. All holiday festivities will be free and open to the public.

The Christmas festivities will kick-off on Friday, November 20th and will run through December 24th. On Friday the 20th Santa will be in the Village of Rochester Hills taking free photos in an open-air Woodland Lodge-inspired setting.

If you want to take the kids to see the reindeer, they will be in the village every Sunday from November 29th to December 20th from 2-6 pm.

Let's get back to those lights, 350,000 is a lot of freaking lights. If you watch the video above you'll see what it looks like and how they put to use that many lights. I went years ago and it was really cool to see that many lights just lining the buildings and streets.
