Forty-one businesses and organizations have volunteered to install a lighted holiday display for the 2022 Winter Celebration at Pine Grove Park. This is an increase in participation from 2021 and 2020.

There is more room to grow and Pine Grove Park has the space to accommodate it. This is an event we want to see reach its fullest potential for all of the community to enjoy,” said Kati Gardner, co-supervisor of the Port Huron Recreation Department and the event coordinator of the Winter Celebration at Pine Grove Park.
