(UNDATED) – Two St. Joseph County communities are doing their part to help get people into the Holiday spirit.
The City of Three Rivers will get their Christmas season started tonight with a tree lighting ceremony. It will be at 6:15 PM in the downtown Mural Mall on Main Street. In addition there will be Christmas Caroling, a reading of “Twas The Night Before Christmas” by Mayor Tom Lowry, and hot chocolate will be provided by Love Your Mother.
Santa Claus will be at the Riviera Theater from 12 until 4 PM both Saturday and Sunday.
In Sturgis, as part of Small Business Saturday, Sip and Stroll will be happening in the downtown area from 10 AM until 2 PM. While the event is geared to having the ladies come downtown, guys are welcome to attend as well.
Several businesses will have specials throughout the day such as holiday decorating demonstrations at Designs By Vogt's; free food samplings at Trio's Deli and a chance to win a $500 gift basket from local merchants.
