Children of all ages are invited to the Charlevoix Circle of Arts from 3 to 5pm to partake in some good old fashion holiday craft activities. There will be sprinkles and toppings galore for delicious cookie decorating fun. Or help your little ones make their own pine cone ornament to take home and hang on your family tree. Create precious moments and keepsakes that will be remembered for a lifetime. Holiday craft activities are brought to you by Chemical Bank and Charlevoix Circle of Arts.
Just up the street from the Circle, Charlevoix State Bank will host the North Pole where children can have their picture taken with Santa compliments of Picture This. Santa and his jolly elves will be at the bank to help you capture that special moment from 3 to 5pm. Enjoy festive and tasty treats in the lobby while you wait for your turn to visit Santa. The North Pole is sponsored by Charlevoix State Bank.
Warm up with some hot cocoa and cookies in East Park next to the Community Christmas tree while you wait for the 5th Annual Holiday Parade to make its way down Bridge Street. Cookies and cocoa will be available from 4 to 6pm compliments of Subway and Stafford’s Weathervane Restaurant.
The 5th Annual Holiday Parade, sponsored by 4Front Credit Union will start at 5:30pm. The parade will take place on Bridge Street between Hurlbut and Clinton downtown.
