ONTONAGON — Christmas in Ontonagon starts Thursday with a Christmas Concert at the Christian Center at 6 p.m.

On Friday, two youth dances are slated, one for grades 6-7-8, and another for the high school students.

Judging of the business and residential lighting contest has started, but business and home owners have until Thursday to register.

On Saturday, the activity gets in full swing with a grand opening of the U.P. North Café and open houses at several businesses. A Christmas craft fair will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Ontonagon Area High School.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. there will be a children’s time at the Community Action Center, where children must be accompanied by an adult and they will do crafts, cookie decorating and games.

Other activities for Saturday include a Reindeer Run, open house at the museum, fireworks, community tree trimming, horse-drawn hay rides, and the annual Snow Ball dance from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m at the Eagles Hall.

Sunday is highlighted by the 5:30 p.m. Hometown Christmas parade along River Street. After the parade, Santa will visit at the Fire Hall until 7:30 p.m.

In Bruce Crossing

Christmas at the Crossing will center around a children’s Christmas party at the Settler’s Depot Gallery in Bruce Crossing on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This is the 29th year of the celebration. Every child attending will have their picture taken with Santa and receive a bag of treats.

The VFW craft show at the VFW Hall in Bruce Crossing will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday as well. It will also include a soup and sandwich luncheon.
