During the Festival of Trees, the Muskegon Museum of Art opens its doors for guests to frolic through a winter wonderland of themed trees and seasonal décor. Partygoers can grab an hors d'oeuvre and jam along with a live blues band, a dance-floor motivator even better than pistols rhythmically fired at dancers’ feet. In time for snow season, staffers deck the halls of the museum with holiday decorations and custom-designed spruces to lighten the mood. Revelers can snag potent nog from the cash bar and take sips while viewing the mechanical movements of a model train set, or track down your pet scone's long-lost relative in the gingerbread village. During the festivities, patrons can explore the museum's hallowed halls, which contain exhibits including celebrated paintings, sculptures, and cultural artifacts.

The friendly folks behind Y-Knot Embroidery stitch and screenprint names, logos, or favorite phrases onto a range of accessories and clothes for individuals, businesses, teams, and volunteer groups. The staff can personalize any accessory or article of attire—which can include brightly colored tees, hats, coats, and work-worthy button-ups—in their entire inventory. They can spiff up a polo shirt with an embroidered monogram, or distract potential thieves hoping to steal your beach bag with a screen-printed math problem.
To give back to their community, the staffers promote cancer awareness, stocking items such as Kid’s Cancer Storys, which benefits Grand Rapids’ Van Andel Institute.
