Two very different Christmas celebrations to enjoy in Morton Grove

November 29, 2012 by  

People of all ages enjoy the holidays and want to celebrate with their peers. There are usually a variety of activities and events suitable for people of every age and interest taking place across various communities in Illinois. Morton Grove is no exception and will have at least two very different Christmas celebrations this year. Local printing companies will no doubt be doing their utmost to letting the community know about those celebrations.

For most children, seeing and talking to Santa Claus is what they most look forward to about the holidays. Morton Grove children will get that chance this Sunday, December 2, when Santa Comes to Town in the Park District. He will be riding through town and handing out candy from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm, and some of the candy wrappers will offer a prize to the recipient. The prizes can then be redeemed at the Prairie View Community Center until 3:30 pm. Children will also have a chance to talk to Santa and show him their Christmas lists at the community center.

A completely different event will be the Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s annual Holiday Party. It will take place at Giordano’s Restaurant on December 6 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm and will be a chance for business peers to celebrate the year in business and the chamber itself. With good and a cash bar available, there will also be a wine raffle, a silent auction, and a 50/50 raffle. Admission is free. For more information, call 847-965-0330.
