Who: Sandy Pines Recreation Department
What: Christmas In August
When: Thursday, August 9 – Sunday, August 12
Where: Events take place throughout the park

Christmas in August is a magical holiday at Sandy Pines. Members go all out with Christmas lights and decor for all of the park to see. Many snowbirds also celebrate Christmas with their families instead of traveling during the not-so-enjoyable Michigan winter season. In addition to the holiday cheer, we have numerous great events on the schedule including our Flea Market, Fishing Contest, Movie Nights, Wagon Rides, Bike Parade, Boat Parade Golf Cart Rodeo, Chapel Entertainment & Food Trucks.

In need of Christmas decor? Visit the Sandy Pines Park & Garden Store and help keep money in our park!

Volunteers are needed the week of August 6-9 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm to setup Christmas Decorations on Iroquois Trail. Any help would be appreciated. Please meet at the soccer field if you’re able to lend a hand.

Volunteer Judges are needed in each phase to award the best decorated member site. If you’re interested please email with your name, site number and the phase you’d like to judge.
