Harbor Springs annual Christmas celebration

Harbor Springs has been celebrating Christmas in style for over a century! In the early 1900s, according to the Harbor Springs Chamber of Commerce, a young contractor named George B. Hartung decided to “amplify the Christmas spirit in Harbor Springs by erecting a freshly felled tree in the middle of town.”

The city embraced the tree, and the first official lighting of the Harbor Springs Christmas tree took place on December 24, 1915, “on a chilly Christmas Eve in Zorn Park, with 2,000 in attendance.”

In 2022, Harbor Springs will celebrate the 107th anniversary of their community Christmas tree. The annual tree lighting will take place on Saturday 26 November.

The festivities start at 11am. with a screening of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” at The Lyric Theater. Right after the movie, Santa arrives in a fire truck to greet the kids.

The tree lighting festivities begin at 6pm. The public is invited to sing Christmas carols, enjoy the lighting of the Main Street tree, and celebrate the winners of the annual window decorating contest.

Everyone is then invited to an ecumenical chili dinner at Holy Childhood Parish Hall at 150 W. Main Street, just adjacent to the tree, where you can also enjoy homemade cookies and hot cocoa!
