How to Celebrate Christmas in July in Frankenmuth, Michigan

Carols, lights, and garland are on display all year long in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Celebrate Christmas in July (or anytime of year) at Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland – the world’s largest Christmas store. Avoid shopping till you drop so you can grab a delicious meal at The Old Christmas Station Restaurant.

The pillar of all Christmas decorations are the towering (or tiny) trees decorated with ornaments, tinsel, and bows. Shop for trees that are artificial, pre-lit, or un-lit. While you are at it, peruse the Bronner’s collection of novelty beads and garland, along with tree accessories, toppers, and skirts. Looking for inspiration? You are in luck. There are over 300 decorated trees on display all year long at Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland!

No Christmas is complete without lights! Go traditional, or try out the new and easy to set up laser landscape lights. You may even explore novelty lighting such as wine-bottle-shaped lights, along with mallards, snowmen…even Chewbacca lights! Don’t forget about nightlights. Find Snoopy and Woodstock, nativity themed, Rudolph, or snowflake nightlights to help Santa find his way to the tree.
