On Saturday, November 25, at 6:00 p.m., join us to celebrate 108 years of a magical tradition in downtown Harbor Springs at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. We will be announcing the winners of the Holiday Decorating contest at that time.
Also available again this year is the mailbox to Santa that will be located at the Lyric Threatre. Make sure your children write their letters to Santa and drop them off anytime the month of December.
Main Street, west of State Street, will be closed to traffic beginning at 3p on Saturday.
At 6:00, Celebrate 108 years of a magical tradition in downtown Harbor Springs at the Christmas Tree Lighting. Gather with your friends and neighbors to sing carols, enjoy the lighting of the tree on Main Street and celebrate the winners of the annual window decorating contest.
The public is then invited to attend an ecumenical chili dinner in the Holy Childhood Parish Hall at 150 W Main Street, just adjacent to the tree, where you can also see Santa, enjoy homemade cookies and hot cocoa, courtesy of the American Legion Auxiliary and their sponsor First Community Bank!
