Two things we all must remember this time of the year. That is to not pout or cry. Why? Because Santa Claus is coming to town.
As we all know before he makes his rounds dropping off gifts to good little boy and girls on Christmas eve, he likes to check in to places before that to make sure everyone is behaving. Thanks to some connections we have at the North Pole we're able to let you know when and where some of those stops will be in the Blue Water Area.
St. Nick's first stop will be in St. Clair on Friday, November 18th at 6pm. After riding his sleigh down S. Riverside Street in the parade he'll be given the key to the city and the tree at Palmer Park will be lit.
His next visit will be the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, November 22nd, when he stops in to help ring in the excitement of the season during Marine City’s Lighted Santa Parade!
The night after Thanksgiving, November 25th, Santa kicks off the official start of the holiday season in the city of Port Huron with a parade too. Following the city's parade he'll will throw the switch that lights the McMorran Christmas Tree and leads the crowd in singing holiday carols.
After a week back up at the North Pole he returns to the Blue Water Area to check on all the good girls and boys in Marysville on Saturday, December 3rd at 4pm their annual parade.
The jolly man in the red suit is on a bit of a tight schedule on that Saturday because he's also part of Harbor Beach's Annual Lighted Christmas Parade which starts at 5:30 on Trescott St.
Saint Nick give his reindeer a night off on Wednesday, December 7th and arrives on the back of a decorated in lights antique tractor for Algonac's Santa Parade and Tree Lighting.
