Don't Miss the Aglow on the Avenue Parade with Santa in Downtown Ludington

November 26, 2016

Bring the family to Ludington's Aglow on the Avenue Parade. This is a great way to kick off the holiday season and welcome Santa to town!

The date coincides with Thanksgiving weekend activities, as well as the Small Business Saturday "Shop Locally" promotions, when most stores downtown are open for holiday shopping from 11am-7pm. You can select your tree from the Christmas Tree Lot downtown, enjoy a holiday craft show at the Art Center, and visit with Santa after the parade at Sandcastles Children's Museum.

The Holiday Parade begins at 6pm on Ludington Avenue.

The parade will be traveling east along Ludington Avenue between Gaylord Avenue and Harrison Street. During the parade Santa will stop at James Street Plaza for the Annual Lighting of the Tree.
