Back in Time - Visiting Santa

Evelyn, Marilyn, Brenda, Nancy
Frankenmuth, MI
June 1992 or 1993

I can't recall the exact year that my sisters, my niece and I travelled to Frankenmuth, MI, but I am almost certain it in was in the early 90s.
Frankenmuth is a tourist town, known as Little Bavaria and a lot of fun to explore. One store, Bonner's CHRISTmas Wonderland, is massive (the grounds cover 27 acres) and has every type of ornament, light, or decoration that you can imagine. There is even a Silent Night chapel, a replica of the original Silent Night memorial chapel in Austria.

  1. I've been to stores like that where it's Christmas all year round, though I can't say I've ever been to one that big.

  3. I've always wanted to go to Bonners!

    That's quite a large reindeer! It's good to know he is being safe and crossing at the deer crossing.

  7. Sounds like such a fun place at Christmas! I miss Christmas in Bavaria, especially real, honest-to-goodness Lebkuchen.

  10. I remember visiting there on one of the many visits we made to the Upper Peninsula. I thought the whole town was Christmas oriented. I probably was there the same time frame as you, mid 80's.

  11. What fun! I need to stop in the Christmas Shop at the beach next time, just to be inspired.
