It's back: We had a great Christmas in the Village on December 11th. Lots of great vendors and good support from shoppers. Thanks to Midland States Bank for Santa and thanks to Bennett-Curtis House for providing an activity for kids. The Library did an outstanding job of giving out books. Thanks to all for supporting our return to this event. We hope to repeat the event on December 10, 2022.

Thanks to Chamber of Commerce members: Woldhuis Farms Sunrise Greenhouse, Village of Grant Park's John Henson & Steve Sullivan, and Bob Schurman from LBS Greenhouse for the return of the Flower Baskets in downtown Grant Park. Our thanks to John, Steve, & Bob for watering & feeding all the flower baskets during the summer and keeping them looking wonderful the whole time!
