Holiday Weekend in the MetroParks

Kick off your holiday weekend with a Black Friday Sale at the Mill Creek Golf Course Golf Shop on November 27. Stop in from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. to get your favorite golfers something special for next season.

On Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29 visit Lanterman’s Mill for Olde Fashioned Christmas at the Mill. Sponsored by WFMJ and WBCB, guests will be able to see Lanterman’s Mill dressed in holiday finery for this family-friendly, free event. Taste chestnuts roasted on an open fire, give Santa your wish list, watch artisans demonstrate old fashioned crafts, purchase unique handcrafted gifts, and enjoy entertainment by a juggler, balloon artist, and many fine musicians. To share the holiday spirit with others, bring a new hat, scarf, or pair of mittens to decorate a “Giving Tree.” Donated items will warm up children in need this winter.

On Sunday, November 29 head over to the MetroParks Farm for Santa’s Winter Barn. From 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Santa will make a special appearance with some of his unusual animal friends from around the world. Sit in Santa’s sleigh for a holiday picture. The family-friendly free event is in the barn which is not heated, so dress appropriately. There is a $1 fee for the children’s holiday craft.
