Upcoming Event – 60th Annual Santa on the River in Niles

60th Annual Santa on the River in Niles

In 1962, Roy Peters started something magical in our hometown. Something so magical, that 60 years later, it remains one of Niles’ longest standing and most cherished and memorable Christmas traditions – Santa on the River.

A lighting ceremony will be held on Sunday, November 27th from 5 – 6 p.m. at Lakeland Hospital in the Riverside Parking Lot as we celebrate the 60th year of Santa’s launch. There will be live music by the Michiana Chamber Orchestra, a chance to meet the volunteers who make this happen year after year and free hot chocolate and coffee.

We look forward to seeing you there and ringing in another magical season!
