3 Ways to Spark Holiday Cheer in Mt. Pleasant This Year

As fall leaves turn into winter flakes, bundle up, grab your friends and family, and head to downtown Mt. Pleasant! These upcoming events are guaranteed to warm your heart and spark holiday cheer throughout the community.

Christmas Celebration

From Friday, Dec. 1 through Saturday, Dec. 2, visit downtown Mt. Pleasant to feel the holiday spirit at the annual Mt. Pleasant Christmas Celebration. A community tradition for 24 years, this event offers a variety of activities for the whole family, including a sing-along and tree lighting ceremony on Friday, and hot-off-the-griddle pancakes with Santa and the lighted parade on Saturday.


New this year, the parade will feature a contest with winners selected for “Most Lights,” “Most Creative/Best Craftsmanship” and “Most Holiday Spirit.” Among the winners, one will be named “Best in Show.” To be eligible, parade applications must be submitted to City Hall by Nov. 30, 2017. Find the parade application here.

For a list of activities throughout the two-day celebration and additional information, please visit the City’s blog here.

Santa’s House

Santa Claus is coming to Downtown Mt. Pleasant!  Visit Santa and the North Pole at Town Center, on the corner of Main and Broadway streets, this Holiday season.


Bring your letters to the bright red mailbox and make sure Santa hears your Christmas wishes. Listen to Holiday music and have the yearly conversation with the big guy, himself. Santa Claus is available for free visits through Christmas, and photos are welcome.

When will you be making your way to the North Pole?
