Thousands of lights are illuminating Cathedral Square Park, Pere Marquette Park and Zeidler Union through the New Year, taking the shape of penguins, castles, stars and Christmas trees.

If the snow clears up in time for a quiet evening drive, the city invites you to head downtown and admire its dazzling Holiday Lights Display.

Tonight @ Cathedral Square Park - 6:30 p.m.

The Terry Sims Band brings its brand of funky smooth jazz to Cathedral Square Park tonight at 6:30 p.m. as part of Jazz in the Park. With their spacey, electric arrangements, the group sometimes recalls a jazzier version of the Isley Brothers at their very smoothest.
