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 16th at 6pm. After riding his sleigh down S. Riverside Street in the parade, he'll be given the key to the city and then the tree at Palmer Park will be lit.
His next visit will be the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, November 20th 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 23rd, 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 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 1st at 5pm their annual parade.
The jolly man in the red suit has 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 gives his reindeer a night off on Wednesday, December 5th and arrives on the back of a decorated in lights antique tractor for Algonac's Santa Parade and Tree Lighting.
On Saturday, December 8th, you may not see reindeer in Lexington but you will see a lot of four-legged creatures into the spirit of the season at the Lexington Old Fashioned Christmas Horse Parade. It starts at 2pm.
