From two church cookie walks and an alternative holiday fair to what's considered Livingston County's largest holiday bazaar and a traditional holiday play — it's almost as if Christmas has arrived a few weeks early here in Hartland.
While some events are multiple days, Saturday is the big day. Here's what you can be doing throughout the weekend:
Cookie walks. There are at least two that go to benefit charitable causes:
- From 9 a.m. until they run out Saturday at Hartland United Methodist Church, 10300 Maple Road.
- From 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at All Saints Lutheran Church, 12701 Highland Road.
Sales. Here are two biggies that are unique to Hartland:
- From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday you can find plenty of items at the Warm N Cozy Bazaar, which features more than 200 booths at the Hartland Educational Support Service Center, 9525 E Highland Road. Admission is $2. For overflow parking, a free shuttle service will also be offered at Grille 23, running every 20 minutes.
- From 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, you can shop for holiday fiber art during the Black Sheep Weavers Fiber Guild's 28th Annual Holiday Sale at Hartland Insurance Agency, 2532 Old US 23.
Something new. If you need a break from big crowds, the main branch of the Cromaine District Library, 3688 Hartland Road, says it is offering its first ever Alternative Holiday Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday that'll feature local and international nonprofits who give different gift options.
Entertainment. And if you are looking for holiday entertainment, the Encore Youth Theater of the Hartland Players is presenting A Christmas Carol on 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Hartland Music Hall. Reserved ticket seating is $6 and tickets are available at the main branch of the library.
OK, that's technically six things you could be doing this weekend — but we're being generous. It is the holiday season.
