Set your sights on holiday lights, caroling and holiday treats! Please join in an evening night of fun at the City of Portage annual Traditional Holiday and Tree Lighting Celebration. The fun kicks off at the City Centre, near the Portage District Library on Saturday, December 2 at 6:00 p.m. Thousands of lights will be illuminated in celebration of the holiday season. Then follow a horse-drawn wagon with Santa and Mrs. Claus, complete with jingle bells and Christmas carolers, on a short walk down the Portage Creek Bicentennial Trail to the Celery Flats Historical Area, where the holiday celebration will take place.
