Kick-off the holiday season with Christmas By the Bay, the weekend of November 19th – 21st! It begins with Sturgeon Bay’s “Unwrapping Sturgeon Bay” community car parade on Friday, November 19 beginning at 6pm at Sawyer Park. Parade lineup begins at 5pm, come early and decorate your vehicle or pack the kids in with hot cocoa. Cars will parade through Sturgeon Bay as stores “unwrap” their festive holiday windows for the very first time! After the conclusion of the car parade, join us at the Old Bell Tower at 3rd and Kentucky for the tree lighting, caroling, in-store specials, and music by Josh Gregory, Hervy Hodges, and Mike Raye beginning at 7pm. Tree lighting will happen at approximately 8pm.
Christmas By The Bay fun continues Saturday, with the Holiday Parade at 10am featuring floats, music, and a special appearance from none other than SANTA! After the parade, meet with Santa in his sleigh at the Door County Historical Museum until 1:00 so that he’s sure to get your list!
Free trolley rides will be available throughout Downtown Sturgeon Bay Saturday, November 20 from 11:00am – 3:00pm with stops located at Community Foundation Square, the Door County Historical Museum, Door County Maritime Museum, and Lawless Coffee.
The Santa Mailbox will be right outside of Destination Sturgeon Bay’s door (36 S. 3rd Ave.) so that you can drop off your letters whenever you have them ready to head to the North Pole. The mailbox will be out until December 24th!
Finish off the fun-filled weekend of Christmas By the Bay during brunch with Santa at Stone Harbor Resort on Sunday 9:30-11am. Call 920-746-0700 for reservations.
