[ARCHIVED] Traditional Holiday

Traditional Holiday IG Post

Experience the spirit of the holiday season this Saturday, December 4, at the City of Portage Traditional Holiday & Tree Lighting Ceremony. Begin the night at the City Centre Mayor’s Tree with the annual tree lighting ceremony at 6 PM. Then, sing carols as you stroll down Bicentennial Trail behind a horse-drawn wagon with Santa and Mrs. Claus to Celery Flats. 

At Celery Flats, children can share their holiday wishes with Santa and Mrs. Claus at Stuart Manor or mail their letters to Santa inside the Schoolhouse. Other activities include ice sculpture demonstrations, a petting farm, and holiday crafts. The Proclamation Brass Band and Portage Northern Choir will perform traditional holiday favorites. Complimentary desserts will be available in the Grain Elevator and the Portage Community Center will offer seasonal beverages (donations welcome). 

Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food and clothing donations to benefit the Portage Community Center. Parking is available at the Celery Flats Historical Area, Portage Senior Center and Portage City Hall. This event is FREE and open to the public thanks to our sponsors, Lake Michigan Credit Union and R.W. LaPine Inc. Festivities at Celery Flats run from 6 – 8 PM.
