Horicon, the City on the Marsh, welcomes visitors and residents to enjoy the winter as the snow falls gently on the Town and Marsh. This is a Blessed Land.
Imagine Christmas in 1940′s….you can make that a reality this Christmas. Come to Cookies and Milk with Santa and celebrate! 2013 marks the 30th Anniversary of the classic 1983 film, The Christmas Story. The Horicon Chamber of Commerce will transform the City Hall to look like an old fashioned 1940’s Christmas according to Ralphie to welcome Santa December 14th 10 am to noon.
The line waiting to see Santa Claus will not stretch all the way back to Terre Haute because you can sign up for a ticket and have fun while you wait: decorate cookies, drink milk (chocolate or vanilla), assemble Legos, color or write a letter to Santa. Email the chamber to sign up early! Each child will receive a full Christmas stocking to take home. Last year the Chamber started a tradition of taking the left over stockings to our two senior citizens homes in Horicon.
New this year is a costume contest…one prize each will be awarded to an adult and child who dress up as one of the characters in the movie.
Thanks go to the Horicon Chamber of Commerce businesses who contribute funds, props, food and time to make this a special event for each family in Horicon.
Ho Ho Ho Christmas is on its way.
Lovely, glorious, beautiful Christmas,
upon which the entire kid year revolved.
