Tis’ the season for the holiday festivities to begin!

Make sure you go into the season well prepared by taking advantage of this special event; it’s the perfect place for inspiration and acquisition of all your holiday needs. Whether you’re shopping for that must have gift or those little, but necessary stocking stuffers, you can find it all downtown Charlevoix this holiday season.
11:30am - 1:30pm - Charlevoix Cinema III
In addition to the great sales, Santa will be escorted through town on a City Fire Truck at approximately 11:15am. Bring your little ones downtown to wave at Santa as he goes by. Santa will be dropped off at Charlevoix Cinema III where he will stay and visit from 11:30am to 1:30pm. There is no fee for your child to visit with Santa and have a treat.
2:00pm - Charlevoix Cinema III
Children are invited to watch a free full-length movie at Charlevoix Cinema III sponsored by Charlevoix State Bank. For entry, please bring a canned good to benefit the Charlevoix Food Pantry. While children enjoy the movie, parents are able to relax, sample and shop at the Open House without interruption.
