Santa Extravaganza Brings Christmas Cheer to Downtown Alpena

Alpena — Santa has been busy preparing for Christmas this year, but he found time to make a stop on the sunrise side just in time for his biggest day of the year.

“We really want downtown Alpena to become a little bit more of a Christmas town at this time of year, so we just wanted Santa’s hour, more people getting into the shops and doing fun things, going out and about with the kids, we have an elf scavenger hunt going on right now and the ginger bread competition, so we just really want to bring people out and about with the holiday season.”

Attendees of the event were able to kick back with some hot cocoa and festive activities to heighten their spirits just before Christmas.
