TOP 10 PHOTO OPS AT BRONNER’S
10. ENJOY LIFE!
Bronner’s motto is “Enjoy CHRISTmas, It’s HIS Birthday; Enjoy LIFE, It’s HIS way!”
A photo in our west entrance is the perfect way to forever capture this lovely reminder! And if you come the right time of day, you just may get star-struck!
Love our motto? Learn how Bronner’s adopted it in the ’70s at bronners.com.
9. LASER LIGHTS!
Bronner’s mini LED laser light show in Section 14 is fun for all ages!
Life’s short, so we say, “Dance like no one is watching!”
8. HANGING WITH OUR GNOMIES!
Enjoy a good gnome hunt? Bronner’s has a few of these cute garden elves scattered around, and they’re tickled red and green to see you!
The gnome population has actually grown! Be sure to swing into the Frankenmuth Visitors Center to grab a map and take in the fun throughout town with Frankenmuth’s free gnome hunt!
At the close of the year, Christmastime brings the perfect opportunity for a little self-reflection … or is it that a Christmas ornament brings the perfect (photo) opportunity for a selfie?!
Three hundred sixty-one days of Christmas at Bronner’s, and ornaments as far as the eye can see! You’re sure to find one that captures your personal-ity™!
6. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Yup. Sometimes BIGGER is better! What more excellent way to wish your friends and family a Merry CHRISTmas than by standing next to our larger-than-life Christmas ornament?! Family photo CHRISTmas card 2018, who’s in?!
5. LIONS AND TIGERS, OH MI!
Our Detroit Tigers display, a longtime fan favorite, changes from year to year. One thing that never changes, however, is the inclusion of our pet tiger! This year he’s made a friend in our neighboring Detroit Lions display.
They’ve been hanging around long enough that it’s probably time we name them! Tell us what you think we should name them in the comments below, and look for our poll on Facebook to select the winners!
We also thought it would be fun to share this throwback video with some pretty wild fans at our 2013 display!
4. BRONNER’S BAVARIAN PARADE FLOAT
Frankenmuth celebrated the Bavarian Festival’s 60th anniversary this year! With a history of innovative parade floats since the early ’60s, Bronner’s keeps its float on display after its parade debut through November 1. It makes a fun, new photo op every year! (Fascinated with our festival fun? You may enjoy our past post with an insider’s look at Bronner’s Bavarian Parade Float Design.)
3. WEST ENTRANCE DISPLAYS!
Each year our decorating team creates fun photo ops for you at our west exit. Last year we had a full nutcracker suite; this year we’re bringing things down to the Christmas-tree farm! Whether you pause for a shot in front of our tree farm or take a seat in our big cozy chair, you’re sure to look picture-perfect!
2. SANTA’S SLEIGH WITH RUDOLPH LEADING THE WAY!
Say “Cheese” – or better yet – “Christmas cookie” and catch a dashing photo of Santa and his reindeer before they “Dash away, dash away, dash away all!” Find this fun display parked near Bronner’s south entrance at the reindeer crossing.
AND THE NUMBER ONE SPOT …
1. SANTA’S HOTLINE!
Naughty or nice? The red phone is ringing; will you answer?!
