Weekend promises mirth filled merriment
Struggling with capturing that Christmas Spirit?
The River Country Chamber has just the ticket this weekend with a medley of merrymaking festivities in and around Newaygo this weekend thanks to the sponsorship of Tamarac Spa, Velocity and Millie's Farm Market.
It all kicks off with Thursday’s Season of Hope Charity Auction held this year at the Center for Hope & Healing in White Cloud. This annual bid-fest has always featured an eclectic collection of items ranging from distinctive gifts to singular services and beyond.
Here’s the skinny:
And of course on Friday the centerpiece of the weekend celebration takes place in the downtown district. There is always a bit of magic in the air as the streets shut down and the riverside burg transforms into a bustling hive of activity. As you wander through town there are shop owners providing treats along with some sweet deals on their wares, food vendors lined up and ready to serve, and churches putting on some special events.
And this year with the addition of the outdoor social district known as the Outback, one can enjoy a beverage or two while communing with friends and family at one of the enticing fireplace settings.
Saturday will see runners and walkers getting in their steps at the St. Nick Kick, the pet project of N3 Editor and Newaygo Cross Country Coach Alexis Mercer. Here are the details:
Later in the day on Saturday you can take a ride out to Croton where the Walter F Howarth American Legion Post 381 will be hosting a number of fun activities .
Only those afflicted with chronic Grinchitis would still be lacking in the seasonal spirit after this cascade of Christmas carousing.
It is indeed time for some serious reveling Near Northians.
Let’s get to it.
