Santa Claus is coming to Port Clinton and Oak Harbor this weekend!
The jolly old fellow, all draped in red with a bushy white beard, will come rolling into Oak Harbor on Saturday, Dec. 5 as the featured performer in a Portage Fire Department Fire Truck Parade with Santa and Mrs. Claus at 4 p.m. They will also make an appearance from 5-7 p.m. at the Croghan Colonial Bank drive through.
On Friday, Dec. 11 from 6-8 p.m., and Friday Dec. 18 from 6-8 p.m., Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit the drive through at Commodore Perry Federal Credit Union on Route 19 in Oak Harbor.
Children in the Oak Harbor area are encouraged to bring their letters to Santa Claus, which will be answered by Santa and his elves! Candy will be distributed to the kids through the bank’s drive through pneumatic tubes.
In Port Clinton, Santa will be riding the Port Clinton Fire Department Fire Truck for this year’s “Operation Loud Rudolph” parade around town on Sunday, Dec. 6 at 2 p.m. The parade will begin at the Port Clinton Fire Department station on State Street and noisily wind around the Port Clinton downtown streets before heading east on Perry Street and south on Buckeye Boulevard back to the fire station.
Santa’s lap won’t accommodate any children this year, due to social distancing mandates of COVID-19.
Main Street Port Clinton will host its 7th annual Window Decorating Contest today (Thursday, Dec. 3) in Downtown Port Clinton, featuring holiday themes created this week. The winners will be announced on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
