A Visit From Santa Claus
9:00am – 1:30pm – Charlevoix Cinema III
In addition to the great sales, Santa will arrive downtown on the City Fire Truck at 9am to spread some holiday cheer for the children. Santa will be at Charlevoix Cinema III from 9am to 1:30pm. There is no fee for your child to visit with Santa and have a treat, but after Santa departs, children are invited to stay and watch a free full-length holiday movie sponsored by Charlevoix State Bank.
Free Holiday Movie:
2:00pm – Charlevoix Cinema III
Children are invited to watch a free full-length holiday movie at Charlevoix Cinema III sponsored by Charlevoix State Bank. This year’s movie is yet to be determined. For entry, please bring a canned good to benefit the Charlevoix Food Pantry. While children enjoy the movie, parents are able to relax, sample and shop at the Open House without interruption!
