SHOP LOCALLY: What better way to bring in the holidays than the 24th Annual White Lake Holiday Walk! This year’s Holiday Walk takes place the weekend of November 17 & 18 along the streets of Montague and Whitehall with dozens of participating businesses. Enjoy Christmas Open Houses, featuring gift guides, discounts & special sales, and delicious refreshments. Visit with Santa Claus and see if you made the nice list this year (fingers-crossed). Participating merchants and Santa’s time and locations are located on the Holiday Walk Map/Entry Form, which can be picked up at the White Lake Area Chamber of Comm…erce or any participating Holiday Walk stop (look for the big blue sign in the window). Submit your completed Holiday Walk Map/Entry Form and enter the drawing to win a $50 White Lake Gift Certificate. (Maps will be available soon).
TWINKLE, TWINKLE LITTLE TREE: Whitehall again hosts the White Lake Area “Tree Lighting Ceremony” Friday at 7pm on North Mears Ave. Children of all ages are invited to help decorate the Community Christmas Tree by bringing their own ornaments or create make-and-take ornaments from participating stores. Gather at 6:45 on North Mears and enjoy the festive voices of The White Lake Chorale, while the aroma of roasted chestnuts fills the air and hundreds of holiday luminaries line the sidewalks.
ENJOY THE SEASON OF GIVING: Friday-5pm to 8pm & Saturday-12pm to 3pm, old-fashioned carriage rides await you in both Montague and Whitehall courtesy of Frontier Communications, Montague Foods, and Shelby State Bank. Trolley Rides transport you to any of our participating merchants throughout Montague and Whitehall on Saturday-11am-3pm courtesy of Coldwell Banker Woodland Schmidt/Midstate Title Agency. Don’t forget to head on over to the Nuveen Center in Whitehall on Saturday-11am to 2pm where children can create make-it-and-take-it Christmas crafts. Share in the spirit of Christmas with holiday caroling and a visit with Santa Claus as you stroll along our downtown areas.
