Three Lakes chamber planning Festival of Lights, Jingle Mingle

The spirit of the season will come alive in Three Lakes this week as the chamber of commerce and area businesses will present the 25th annual Festival of Lights and Jingle Mingle shopping event, Nov. 29-30.

"The event is a family-friendly, fun and overall uplifting occasion meant to ring in the holiday and Christmas season in Three Lakes," Chamber Director Collette Sorgel said in a press release.

Beginning Friday, events will get underway downtown as the Three Lakes Center for the Arts will air a free showing of the holiday classic "Polar Express" at 2 p.m. Children and their families are invited to come dressed in pajamas with a Christmas photo.

The evening events will be headquartered at Cy Williams Park in Three Lakes beginning at 4 p.m. and will include an old-fashioned tree lighting ceremony and live reindeer, elves, a sleigh for photos and a horse-drawn carriage ride. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.

The activities will start off at 4 p.m. where you can meet some of Santa's reindeer plus free horse-drawn carriage rides from 4 to 7 p.m. with stop off points in Three Lakes. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive by fire truck at 5 p.m.

The lighting of the 95-foot Christmas tree with over 3,000 lights will follow, according to the release.

We will have Christmas music. Cookies, cocoa, coffee and chili will be available.

The Three Lakes chamber will accept donations for the Festival of Lights to go with the chili, coffee and hot chocolate. Baked goods or cookies can be dropped off at the chamber office on Wednesday between 10 & 6 p.m. or if you are unable to drop the off you can do so on Friday before 3 p.m.
