After a two-year absence, Ontonagon brought back their Hometown Christmas last weekend. The three-day event ended with parents and children lined up across a village street to see Santa. The smiling children visited with Santa inside the Ontonagon Volunteer Fire Department.
“We look at our events to bring smiles to children and our elderly. I can say that all the smiles made everything worthwhile,” commented committee volunteer Carmen Burrows. “We are thankful to all those that participated in the wide variety of events, along with all the volunteers and our fantastic sponsors.”
The Hometown Christmas opened up last Friday with the judging on the Christmas lighting. The categories for this included both indoor and outdoor for businesses, along with traditional and Griswold for homes.
Taking a first place for the inside of a business was Strong Dental Center. Second and third went to Harbor Towne Pharmacy and Olde Swing Bridge Roasters. Winning the Business Outside holiday décor went to 906 Services, with Olde Swing Bridge Roasters and Cane Court Circle.
