MANISTEE — In the past week, Manistee saw the first snowflakes of the season — real and the kind the lights up.

The sign over River Street is lighting the way for all downtown visitors, and is one of many decorations that can be found in the city during the holiday season. (Jane Bond/News Advocate)

The season’s first substantial snowfall left the ground covered — with more on the way — and employees from Manistee’s Department of Public Works could be found around town installing snowflakes and garland on light poles along Washington, Division and River streets, as well as U.S. 31.

The festive work will continue next week.
