Christmas in Rapid River is happening Saturday, Dec. 7. The event features a Christmas dinner, crafts, discounts, door prizes and a concert.
Festivities begin at 9 a.m. and end with the Cathy Bolton Christmas concert at 7 p.m.
The tradition began 40 years ago with the Rapid River Congregational Church. Every year they serve a traditional Christmas dinner. This year, the theme is a â??Crystal Christmas,â?? with dinner being served from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
â??We all know that tomorrow will be chilly,â?? said Sara Anderson, owner of Northern Lights in Rapid River. â??But, we do hope that you will come and join us and all the Rapid River businesses, and we sure hope to see a lot of the local people.â??
Fliers listing all the Christmas in Rapid River activities are posted throughout the city.
