Community Christmas celebration in downtown Port Clinton

Main Street Port Clinton’s Downtown Promotion Committee is organizing our annual Community Christmas event for Saturday, Dec. 7.  This year is extra special since the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council has teamed up with Main Street to host a Christkindl Markt from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot of US Bank located at 142 E. Second Street. Warm beverages, food, holiday music, arts, and holiday gifts will be found in abundance.  

The Promotion Committee will continue the great tradition of a Christmas Parade downtown. Any interested businesses are asked to participate. Participants will be judged on originality and Christmas theme. First, second, and third places will receive plaques for display.  There is no fee to enter the parade this year. Parade Registration Forms can be picked up at 110 Madison or requested at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Children and families will have the opportunity to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Island House beginning at 2:30 p.m. Children can participate in activities at local restaurants and retail stores including cookie decorating, ornament making, and coloring contests.  The festivities continue with the Christmas Parade at 4:30 p.m. ending at Adams Street Park for the City’s Tree Lighting Ceremony and Gift of Lights.
