Back to Archives Home

Have fun this holiday season!

The snow has arrived and the holiday season continues to provide fun activities for you and your family to enjoy!

If you still have a few gifts on your wish list this year, be sure to stop by Santa's House in downtown Traverse City to let him know what you'd like this Christmas! While you're there, be sure to check out the beautiful 55-foot Colorado Blue Spruce Christmas Tree located at the intersection of Front & Cass Street.

"A Christmas Carol in Prose" debuted on December 1st and has been well received among audiences and critics alike. If you haven't had the chance to view the performance yet, don't worry, there's still time! Parallel 45's production of the classic tale will continue to be performed until Sunday, December 18th at the City Opera House in downtown TC.

The new year is also just around the corner! If you're still searching for those perfect New Years Eve plans, head downtown to CherryT Comedy or the CherryT Ball Drop. The non-profit event raises money and collects non-perishable food items for those in need. 

Highway M-115 has a fresh new look!

The 6.4 mile stretch of Highway M-115 from Benzonia to Frankfort was reconstructed this past summer. The project was extensive, requiring 40,000 yards of unsuitable material to be removed and hauled away to cut subgrade and make room for 30,000 yards of sand to replace it. The crews also put down roughly 50,000 ton of fresh asphalt for the newly resurfaced roadway. 

Take a look at the challenges the crews faced throughout the 8 month long project. And find out what one young observer did to help them power through the long hours and hot summer days in this episode of the TEU!
