In this week’s What’s Happening in Northern Michigan, Courtney Sheffer shows us all the fun activities you can enjoy with your family during November.

Old Mission Peninsula Wine Trail

Hit the wine trail this winter and save with an Old Mission Peninsula Wine Trail Winter Flight Pass! The Winter Flight Pass entitles you to exclusive tastings, discounts, and specials at each of the 10 unique wineries that are part of the trail. The pass gets you a flight of 3 wines at each of the 10 Old Mission Peninsula Wine Trail wineries (a $100+ value!), as well as 10% off your bottle purchases, plus wine by the glass specials at each winery. The Flight Pass is valid now through February 28, 2022, allowing you to enjoy the tastes of Northern Michigan throughout the winter!

Ladies Weekend Out

Today marks the kickoff of the Harbor Springs “Ladies Weekend Out.” Grab your girlfriends, mom, sister, or any of the ladies in your life and enjoy special pricing at downtown Harbor Springs shops and restaurants, available through Sunday, November 14. Visitors can grab a passport at any of the participating businesses, and collect stamps anytime you make a purchase. You’ll receive tickets for your purchases, which can be used to enter into drawings at the Harbor Springs Chamber office. It’s a great way to have some fun, do some shopping, and support local businesses!

Walloon Lake Village Lighting 

If you’re looking to get in the holiday spirit, be sure to check out the Walloon Lake Village Lighting, happening on Wednesday, November 24. This free, family friendly event will kick off at 6 p.m. and feature live performances from the Petoskey Steel Drum Band, live reindeer, and a special visit from Santa & Mrs. Claus. Guests can enjoy free hot chocolate, kids’ activities, and a cash bar, plus local vendors will be selling unique gifts for everyone on your list. Donations will also be accepted at the Village lighting for Toys for Tots and The Manna Food Project.
