Traditional Holiday and Tree Lighting Ceremony

Bring your family to experience the spirit of the holiday season. Festivities begin at the City Centre with caroling and a tree lighting ceremony. Join in the caroling while we stroll down Bicentennial Trail behind a horse drawn wagon with Santa and Mrs. Claus to Celery Flats. Where Santa and Mrs. Claus will greet the children and hear their Christmas wishes at the Hayloft Theatre. Additional highlights include an appearance by Santa’s reindeer, ice sculpture demonstration, letters to Santa inside the Schoolhouse, local musical talent performing traditional holiday favorites and complimentary desserts at the Hayloft Theatre. Portage Community Center will have hot chocolate and hot cider available for a $1 donation per cup. Food and clothing donations are also welcome. All proceeds from beverage sales and donations will support local charities this holiday season. Corporate sponsorships and donations are encouraged. Parking is available at the Portage Central High School, Portage District Library, Portage Senior Center and Portage City Hall.
