What do you get when you cross one of Detroit’s most popular destination neighborhoods with enough holiday cheer to make Santa himself grab the reins? Well, you get the third annual Corktown Aglow.

During this single-day neighborhood celebration, you can peruse the holiday markets and storefronts, visit the reindeer petting zoo, hang with the Grinch, take in historical Corktown with a trip through an 1849 home, and snap a picture with Santa while sipping on hot chocolate as the Corktown tree is set, appropriately, aglow. Free shuttles will be available and visitors are encouraged to donate new and unwrapped toys, clothing, and outerwear as part of the Detroit Police Department’s charitable program, “Stuff a Cop Car,” for children in need.

Corktown Aglow will take place starting at noon on Saturday, Dec. 8 throughout Corktown; corktownaglow.com; Event starts at noon; Admission is free.
