Vote For Charlevoix's Best Hot Cocoa


751Tis’ the season for the holiday festivities to begin!

On Saturday, December 7th, merchants will be armed with entertainment, samples, refreshments, special sales, raffles and more during the Charlevoix Merchant Open House.


Santa will arrive downtown at noon to spread some holiday cheer for the children. Santa will be downtown from noon to 1:00pm courtesy of the Charlevoix Township Fire Department.


After Santa departs, children are invited to watch a free full-length holiday movie at Charlevoix Cinema sponsored by Charlevoix State Bank and Charlevoix Cinema III.  This year’s free movie is The Polar Express. For entry, please bring a canned-good to benefit the Food Pantry. 


A new addition to the Open House is the 2013 Hot Cocoa Contest.  Area restaurants invite you to sample and vote on your favorite hot cocoa.  Cocoa stations will be set up at participating downtown stores.  Just look for the “Cocoa Trail” posters in the store-front windows to sample and vote for your favorite.
