Calling children, parents, and all believers in the Magic of Christmas!

Jolly 'Ole St. Nick will return to Dowagiac this Sunday from 4 to 5 p.m. for a special appearance with Miss Dowagiac Lynsie Stolpe and her Court of Honor!  Santa will make a guest appearance on the Miss Dowagiac Float, which will be escorted through the community by the Dowagiac police and fire departments. 

This will be a drive-by "parade," which provides the public with the opportunity to wave to Santa.  Families are invited to come outside to see Santa and our Miss Dowagiac as they pass by, standing alongside the street or gathering - with masks on - within one of the school parking lots. The caravan will leave the fire station at 4 p.m. and will travel the following route through the community.

·         From the fire station to Wolf, Franklin & Solomon, to Patrick Hamilton Elementary School parking lot.

·         Patrick Hamilton to Main, Division & Oak, to Justus Gage Elementary School.

·         Justus Gage to James, Prairie Ronde, Colby, Division, and onto Riverside Drive.

·         Riverside to the Dowagiac Middle School parking lot.

·         Back up Riverside to Hill, Cass, Jefferson & Pokagon, to Andrews.

·         Andrews to Cora, Thickstun & Pokagon, to the apartments within the commercial center.

·         Pokagon to M-62, to Whitney, back behind Taco Bell, and then back to the fire station.

 The Miss Dowagiac Scholarship Pageant, a committee of the Greater Dowagiac Chamber of Commerce, is pleased to bring this opportunity to the community. We look forward to seeing you this Sunday from 4 to 5 p.m!  Merry Christmas to All!
