Tree lighting this weekend

By Judy Reed

Looking for some holiday cheer? You don’t want to miss the “Mingle with Kris Kringle” event this Saturday, December 1, put on by the Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce. 

The day will run from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., with various fun, family-friendly, events. The day starts with a Jingle Bell Fun run/walk. Registration at 9 a.m. and registration at 9:30 a.m. 

Families can make and take Christmas ornaments and crafts at the Cedar Springs Library from 9-noon. You can also enjoy a story time with Mrs. Claus from 2-3 p.m. at Perry’s Place llc for herbs, teas, and more. There will also be a meet and greet with Cedar Springs cheerleaders, a petting zoo, and caroling, all before the mini-parade that brings Santa to the corner of Main and Ash Street at about 4:30-4:45.

Following the parade will be a live nativity scene near the Christmas tree, and mingling with Kris Kringle at the American Legion Hall, where kids can meet Santa and write him a letter, and families can enjoy hot cocoa. 

The fun then continues next weekend with the Kent Theatre Christmas Concert on Saturday, December 8 from 3-5 p.m., and the Kent Theatre Christmas Dance Extravaganza on Sunday, December 9, from 3-5 p.m. Admission is $3 for each show. Then on Monday, December 10, enjoy a free Christmas Carriage ride from 5-8 p.m., starting at the White Pine Trail staging area at the end of W. Maple Street.
