Multiple holidays and traditions will be celebrated at Palmer Park’s historic Log Cabin on Sunday, December 9 from 2-5 p.m. for WinterFest. The free family festivities will include activities celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, along with hayrides and carriage rides in the woods.

The Log Cabin was built in 1885 and has been in the process of restoration by the People for Palmer Park. It’s been closed for the most part of the last 40 years. Recently, the cabin has only been open a few times a year for special events—this weekend it will be decorated for the holidays by neighborhood teams.

Inside, visitors will have the chance to make holiday ornaments, snack on sweets, sip hot cocoa, and decorate gingerbread cookies. Music will be performed by violinists from Detroit Youth Volume, singers from the Dream Arts Co. musical “Madeline’s Christmas,” and members of the Grosse Pointe South Choir.

Signage will be up for free parking, and a small donation is requested for carriage or hayrides. More information can be found here.
