Santa’s friends from the Portage District Fire Department in the Village of Oak Harbor will be guiding the big guy with the red suit and bushy white beard through the streets on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 4:15 p.m. as he opens the 2019 Holiday Season.
Santa will arrive at the Log Cabin at 5 p.m. to light the Village Christmas Tree and to visit with the children. Each child will have the opportunity to share their Christmas wish list with Santa at the Log Cabin and receive Santa Bucks. The special “bucks” will allow the kids to shop for two free gift items for their loved ones from several businesses downtown.
Parents will receive a punch card. If parents and kids visit each of the participating stores and have their card punched, they can then enter the card into a drawing for a $100 gift certificate. After the children have purchased their gifts they may head to Portage Fire Station from 5-7 p.m. for cookies and cocoa, and parents can turn in their entries for the drawing.
Santa will also be at the Log Cabin from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 13 and Friday, Dec. 20. For more information, contact the Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce at 419-898-0479.
