Vermilion Christmas Tree Ship
December 7 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Main Street Vermilion invites everyone, young and old, to bundle up and gather riverside at McGarvey’s Landing for the arrival of our Christmas Tree Ship, a classic icebreaker loaded with Christmas trees and holiday cheer.
It’s a heartwarming sight to see the breaker make its way down the river as the Vermilion Community Band plays Christmas music and Vermilion’s own Sid Jordan shares the story and sings the ballad of the historic Christmas Tree Ship that sailed the Great Lakes. We’ll have cookies, donuts and hot chocolate to keep you warm, too and we’ll also recognize the winners of the Vermilion Elementary Christmas coloring contest.
