Shop Small & Local this Weekend!
This weekend kicks off the start of the holiday season in Glen Arbor! We invite you to shop small and shop local at the special events we have lined up after Thanksgiving:
On Friday, November 29th, be sure to get up early and keep your pajamas on for the annual Pajama Party sales! Participating shops will open at 5am and offer the best prices of the season through 8am. Participating shops include Cherry Republic, M22 Glen Arbor, Art's Tavern, Forest Gallery, Crystal River Outfitters, The Cyclery, Lake Affect, The Sportsman Shop and many more. While the best deals are offered early, many stores will also be offering discounts throughout the day. Beat the crowds and shop local in our beautiful small town!
Later on Friday at 7pm, Glen Arbor will also host their tree lighting ceremony at Township Hall. Huddle together with hot drinks and doughnuts provided by Art's Tavern as the beautiful trees in the center of town are lit for the season. Join in with holiday carolers and experience the peace and beauty of Christmas in Glen Arbor!
Looking for unique and locally made gifts? Come to Glen Arbor's Holiday Marketplace on Saturday, November 30th from 10am-4pm. Michigan artisans, craftspeople and merchants will be on hand showcasing one of a kind treasures for everyone on your holiday list. Items are available for any budget! Also be sure to bring the kids, as Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on site at Noon to meet your child and hear their Christmas wish list. Each child will receive their own special gift from Santa to take home!
Empire will also be holding their Artisans Marketplace on Saturday from 10am-4pm at their Town Hall, just a short drive from Glen Arbor.
These events are a wonderful opportunity to wrap up your shopping list early while supporting local businesses and artists!
