SPRING CREEK – Spring Creek is gearing up for the holidays with family-friendly events for all ages.

Christmas at the Marina is a new event that kicks off on Dec. 2 for three weeks of activities, all from 6-8 p.m., that include music, hayrides and carriage rides, Christmas lights and food served by Ruby Mountain Hot Dogs.

On Friday a tree-lighting ceremony at the Marina dock will feature a performance by the Spring Creek High School High Expectations Choir, along with photos with Santa.

The following week, on Dec. 9, children can participate in a Santa’s Workshop Activity and take Christmas photos on the Marina Dock. The event concludes on Dec. 6 with Santa pictures.

Families, businesses, organizations and clubs are invited to join in the fun with their display along the walking path at the Marina. The cost to reserve a spot is a minimum $50 donation, with proceeds going toward the Fourth of July Freedom Festival and other SCA events.
