The Lineup-December 2014

The Lineup is a monthly blog post featuring local events that Ironwood is attending, sponsoring, or hosting.

It’s officially the holiday season! There are so many fun things to do in the month of December – check some of them out below.

December 4-Christmas Comes to Union Grove, Tree Lighting Ceremony

Every year, the community gets together to light the village Christmas tree in Village Square [Main Street and 10th Avenue]. After the tree has been lit, Santa and his elf will be arriving in downtown Union Grove on a fire truck! Children can get a photo with Santa and deliver their Christmas lists to him. Hot chocolate is served by the local businesses and the Kiwanis open their holiday Christmas tree lot. New this year, guess how many lights are on the Christmas tree and win breakfast with Santa tickets!
