Three events are bringing Christmas Cheer to our community. The Holiday Market and Tree lighting Ceremony, the Historical Society’s Wassal Night at the Wixom-Wire House, and the Wixom Firefighter’s have their annual Breakfast with Santa at the Fire Station on Wixom Road.
All events are fun-filled activities to kick-off the Holiday Season. It is time to get into the Holiday Spirit while shopping or visiting with friends and neighbors at these special events presented by many community volunteers and donations made by our dedicated sponsors.
The annual Holiday Market is coming to Sibley Square on Friday, Dec. 4, from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 5, 12:00 to 10:00 p.m. From 6:15 to 8:00 is the tree-lighting ceremony. It is a fun-filled event with the children and adults viewing the Christmas trees lighting and seeing Santa arrive. After Santa’s arrival, children may visit with Santa within the Community Center.
Special events include the Walled Lake Western’s Band kicking off the festival and the First Baptist Church’s Christian Choir will follow with Christmas Carols. There will be Arts and Crafts Vendors, Horse Drawn Carriage Rides, Food Vendors, Beer and Wine Tent, and Live Entertainment.
The Holiday Market event is also the Historical Society’s Fund Raiser. They are selling Pine Door Swags at $10.00. Now is the time to get your SWAG and help the Historical Society. Many vendors will be available for your purchasing pleasure for the Holidays. Additionally, during the Holiday Market, on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. is Wassail Open House at the Wixom-Wire Museum. Goodies are available.
While meeting friends and neighbors at the event, you too may bring your singing voice and belt-out a few Christmas Carols bringing in the Holiday Spirit with you talent. Visit the Museum decorated for the Holidays, enjoy the music, the treats and camaraderie.
Just as important is the Wixom’s Fire Department’s “Breakfast with Santa” on Dec. 12, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Wixom Road Fire Station. The Firefighters work hard for the community and their annual Breakfast with Santa is a very popular and wonderful event for adults and children. A child’s visit with Santa is a must do at the breakfast.
