Rochester, MI Big Bright Light Show

What better way to celebrate 29 years of marriage than having a backdrop of 1.2 million lights?  Hubby and I headed to downtown Rochester for some great eats (Rochester Chop House) and to view the Big Bright Light Show 2016.  Neither disappointed.

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season continues into January in Rochester, a beautiful city right next to ours, population of 13,000 with a very vibrant downtown.  This is the 11th year for the Show.  It takes two crews working 7 days per week for eight weeks starting October 1 to try to get it done before Thanksgiving.

We ate and then absolutely had to walk around to feel better about ourselves and the quantity of food we had just devoured.  It was cold – about 28 degrees with a strong wind so walking briskly was a must.

A girl can dream, can’t she?

 

Cheers to us and Happy New Year to all of you!
