LAKE FRONT CALENDAR of EVENTS...

2021 Calendar of Events

By Catharine Hadley, Arts and Entertainment Editor, catharinehadley@gmail.com

The theme of this column is "trying new things." I'm happy to be starting this new project of writing the entertainment column for Leisure Living Magazine! I've done all I could to make the entertainment listing complete and varied, so there should be something for everyone. Although I've done my best to make sure all the information is accurate, please go online or call ahead to confirm your plans.

Any suggestions and details of your upcoming events can be sent to me at catharinehadley@gmail.com.

& Other Celebrations

Holiday Memories

The holiday season is here! Our area has such a rich history, and visiting our landmarks when they are decorated for Christmas makes me feel like a little girl again. One of my favorite childhood memories was when my mother would take me to Historic Lyme Village to see the tree, the d├ęcor, and the volunteers in period costumes. We can revisit that magic with several events scheduled at Lyme Village in the first part of December.

An annual favorite is the "Hayes Train Special" at Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums. Miniature trains will run through a Victorian-era holiday scene in the museum auditorium. The 12-foot by 24-foot display features different tiers, villages, tunnels, and holiday scenes. Visitors can interact with some aspects of the display, using buttons to control a Ferris wheel, ice skaters, and one of the trains. There is no charge, but a donation box will be available. The display is open from Nov. 26 through Jan. 9.

Another fun way to celebrate our history and the season will be through one of the events in the Historical Program Series of the Sandusky Maritime Museum. On Dec. 18, Mary Singer will present "The Christmas Tree Ship." There will be two programs that day - an early one for children with a visit from Santa, and a later one for adults.

Also of interest, on Dec. 4 the museum's historical program will be "The Maiden Voyage of the Onward" presented by Bob Reynolds. I was lucky enough to see that at The Arts Garage in Port Clinton this autumn, and I highly recommend it.

The Arts Garage, which is the home of the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council, hosts a Christmas market through Dec. 31. Check the website to see all the classes and other events that are planned. The most exciting one will be the Tree-A-Rama Silent and Live Auction benefiting the Salvation Army and the GPCAAC. That's scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 5. Come for the fun and leave with a beautifully decorated tree!

That's Entertainment !

Once the holidays are over, I plan to spend some time enjoying "the great indoors." The Paramount Cinema in Fremont is a fun place to watch movies. You'll find a nice variety of titles, with choices for adults and children. For me, the experience of going to a smaller theater is much more fun.

Also in Fremont, The Strand Concert Theater features bands and other acts onstage. Check the website or the Facebook page for upcoming events. Food is available, and patrons can BYOB if the event is over 21.

Shop Small & Local

Anyone who has read my columns through the years will not be surprised that I hope we will all try to shop locally! Think about buying gift cards from one of these local venues, a favorite restaurant, or a store; or consider giving a museum membership or season tickets for a local theater. If you can't decide, some chambers of commerce offer gift certificates that can be used at participating businesses.

The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council is making plans to get ready for Christmas! Starting Nov. 1, The Arts Garage will be the home of a ChristKindl Market. It's the new location of the Tree-A-Rama fundraiser for the local Salvation Army, so if you visit after Nov. 13 you might be able to see some of the decorated donated trees that will be sold on Dec. 3.
