Mackinac's classic Christmas weekend benefiting Mackinac Island's Churches and Mackinac Island Medical Center is happening this weekend! This is a yearly tradition where the community of year-long residents gather to celebrate the Christmas season. The Mackinac Island Community Hall is opened up for shopping, an auction and meals! All of the profits are given back to the churches and medical center.
The Christmas Tree Lighting was last night, Friday, December 6th at 5:00 PM in the center of Main Street.
There is a snowmobile raffle, too! Attendees purchase tickets to win a 2020 Yamaha Snowmobile which benefits the Mackinac Island Christmas Bazaar. The winner has yet to be announced, as it will be announced on Monday!
Canvas and Paddle loves being part of a community that gives back. Last night was another reminder of what a great place Mackinac Island is - and that it is truly only this great because of its residences.
