Santa visits Port Huron

It is a week full of special sales and seasonal parades. Thursday saw some local participation the Detroit Thanksgiving Day Parade where one of the early marching band groups were the Vikings from Marysville. Tonight in Port Huron Jolly old St. Nick will be heading to town, and to celebrate his arrival a parade will begin at 6pm, starting at Wall & Military Street and proceeding north through Downtown. Santa will then pull the switch to light the Community Christmas Tree, and the Mayor Pauline Repp will present him with the key to the city. Ben Pionk, with the Port Huron Parks and Rec, says this year's tree is little different than previous ones. With help from Eastern Michigan Bank the tree will have all new lights and a musical sound system. The tree will also be animated and was donated to the city by the McGrergor Family of Port Huron. You can tune in to 94.1 to listen to the music being played with the tree. Santa will also be visiting with children, after the parade, in the Memorial Room at McMorran.
