It's the most wonderful time of the year! Santa will be in Mancelona on Saturday, December 18, 2021 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., downtown at the Buck Pole and Farmers Market area. He'll arrive by fire truck about 5 p.m. to greet kids. Hot dogs, hot chocolate and treats will be distributed to all the young children as they eagerly wait to share their Christmas gift wish list with the popular fellow. There will be music, lighted Christmas tree, bonfire and fun for all. At 7:00 p.m, all are invited to gather for the light parade when the fire truck returns to pick up Santa Claus and get him back to his sleigh for his ride back to the North Pole.
Businesses are invited to decorate their vehicles and participate in the parade. No pre-registration is required; meet at Mancelona Fire Department on Cedar River Road by 6:30 p.m. to line up. Parade will come through downtown Mancelona (from Cedar River Road to the traffic light), pick up Santa at the Buck Pole, then proceed through residential area before returning through downtown Mancelona and back to the fire hall.
