The fifth annual (unofficial) start to the holiday shopping season! This event is inspired by the tradition of hunting camp, which evokes camaraderie, good food, and tall tales. Ladies shop and hunt for deals throughout town while also creating their personal “Wish-Lists” to give to their partner to make their holiday shopping a little easier. After a night of shopping, the women gather at the Perry Hotel for a prize drawing off the Buck Pole!
Holiday spirit will be coming your way during the 2018 Stafford’s Downtown Petoskey Holiday Parade, Saturday, November 24 at 10 am. The parade will wind through Downtown streets and end at the Perry Hotel, where children will have those all-important conversations with Santa!
The region’s premier holiday event! The streets close and fill with holiday cheer while merchants open their doors to offer warm holiday greetings and hospitality. Not to mention, the big man himself fly’s into town to light the giant Christmas tree in Pennsylvania Park!
