Archey Fork Park


Now in its 5th year!

Enjoy a community-wide Christmas festival on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2019.

Christmas at the Park kicks off at 4pm at Archey Fork Park behind Huddle House, with free hot chocolate, carriage rides by the Steve Landers “Cowboy Clydesdales,” old-fashioned hayrides, a 20-passenger “Polar Express,” costume contests, a bonfire at dark, and the official lighting up of the park at dark. Meet many of your favorite Christmas characters (including the Grinch, SCharlie Brown & Snoopy, and more!) as we host special guests from local non-profits including the Van Buren County K9 Unit.
Admission is FREE! Bring friends and family – costumes are encouraged! – and enjoy an exciting Saturday!
