Christmas in Detroit. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Many holiday events are planned for Detroiters to celebrate the holidays.
From parades such as the famous “America’s Thanksgiving Parade” to Midtown Detroit’s festive “Noel Night“, there are so many wonderful holiday events in the D. It’s seriously hard to pick just one event. I think I even tried to see if we could attend more than one event on the same day. That was quite the challenge, let me tell you.
Detroit holiday events I did get to see:
- America’s Thankgiving Parade
- Campus Martius Holiday Events
- Noel Night
Detroit holiday events I missed, but I really wanted to see:
- Wild Lights at the Detroit Zoo
- Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village
- Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland
- Chaunu-Con! A Community-Wide Chanukah Festival
- Eastern Market’s Holiday Market
- Detroit Urban Craft Fair
- Signal-Return’s Holiday Card Jam
Being sick during the holidays is no fun.
So I feel like I didn’t really get to experience all of the festivities this past Christmas because I was sick. This means I also wasn’t able to get out and do photography.
I even had to decline a couple of photography projects because of illness. It was hard to say no, but it was the best thing to do. I can’t give my all if I am not at my best.
Normally, I go out for photography every other weekend. Sometimes more often. Just depends on what’s going on with my family’s schedule and city events.
Michigan winter weather is no joke!
I mentioned this in my previous post: the weather has also been a contributing factor to my skipping photography opportunities. Last year, I didn’t let the cold and snowy weather keep me from going out. But this winter is a bit more fierce. I just couldn’t bring myself to step out in the harsh cold and walk around the city. (I did manage to get one snow play day with my hubby and kids.)
It’s been almost a month since I have been out to photograph city life and I really miss it. I’m hoping I can get out soon to do some shooting.
The photographs featured in today’s post were taken at the beginning of December. Before I got sick and before the cold, snowy weather hit.
