Santa’s Arrival and Tree Lighting in Downtown Traverse City

Friday November 28th the magic of the holiday season begins. Spend the day lingering over 150 downtown stores and restaurants, enjoy a serenade of holiday music and stay for the evening’s festivities.


Join the downtown community around 5:15pm for a sing-a-long of holiday carols lead by the Traverse City Central High School students around the Christmas tree.  The fun continues with the excitement of Santa’s arrival in a horse drawn sleigh.

Santa’s house will be open for children to visit from 6-8pm on the corner of Cass and E. Front Street. Horse & Carriage rides from Abraham Carriage Service will be available for an affordable price until 8pm.
