Downtown Owosso Glow Cruise

Friday, November 27th starting at 6:30pm

Remember when we were kids and we all packed into the car and drove around to see Christmas lights throughout the town? For some, that might still be a yearly tradition. This year, we have not been able to gather in the ways we’ve hoped. Events have been canceled or changed, and the holidays will look different for many. Our yearly Glow Owosso Event is no different, we have had to make changes to our activities to keep people safe. We hope you will join us as we draw onto past traditions with this year’s Glow Cruise adaptation to our annual Glow Parade. Take time this Friday night starting at 6:30pm, pack into your car and cruise our amazing community to view all the wonderful lights throughout town. Downtown Owosso will be lit up and glowing like it does every year. We will have a handful of lighted displays throughout downtown. Homes, churches, and even the river are lit up throughout the City. Take time this Friday to explore our glowing community! We have provided you with this simple map to get you started. Next year we hope to gather with you again. #owossostrong #downtownowosso
