Mark your calendars now & plan to join us on Saturday, December 2 for Christmas at the Commons – a strolling Holiday event.
Once again, in place of a traditional parade, we will be closing Chicago Drive mid-day on Saturday, December 3 and staging a stationary parade with lit floats, holiday animals, Dickens Carolers, North Pole houses, character photo stops, and stages for Christmas musicians. In the lots around the stationary parade we will add train rides, food vendors, a mini Christmas market, the mega tree, a synthetic ice rink, and more. The tree lighting, hosted by Grandville City Council and accompanied by the GHS marching band, will take place at 5:30 pm by the big tree along Chicago Drive. Festivities may be enjoyed anytime throughout the evening from 5-8:30 pm.
All activities (except skate rental) are free. Bring your own skates or rent for $5.00. All lines will be long. The parade and Christmas market will end at 8:30 pm. The Rudolph train ride and synthetic ice rink will run until 9:00 pm. Food vendors will set their own prices.
