There's an opportunity available to burn off all that turkey in downtown Howell Friday.

A Fantasy 5K run will kick off at 6 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church.

The race is the opening event for the night's biggest attraction - the Howell Fantasy of Lights Parade, which starts at 7 p.m. in downtown Howell.

A Fantasy fun event will start at 3:45 p.m.

Families will be able to share their wishes with Santa in Christmas Alley, located on State Street. He will greet children starting at 4 p.m. At the end of the parade, Santa will light the city's Christmas tree together with the Grand Marshal. Santa and his reindeer are sponsored by Auto-Lab. 

New this year is a partnership with The Alley District in downtown Howell. Santa will magically light the creative, decorated trees in the alley around 3:45. Look for his elves to direct you to the fun.
