Public Invited to Christmas Tree Bonfire this Weekend

Share this post

One Lake County community's annual tradition is making its debut at the LaPorte County Fairgrounds this weekend. The 12th Night Christmas Tree Bonfire Celebration takes place on Sunday at 6pm and is being sponsored by the Cities of LaPorte and Michigan City, as well as Geisen-Carlisle Funeral and Cremation Services. Funeral Director Roy McNeal says Larry Geisen started the tradition 15 years ago in Crown Point at the Lake County Fair Grounds and they thought since he purchased a location in Michigan City they'd start the tradition in the Michigan City/LaPorte area.
Families with real, unwanted Christmas trees are being asked to drop them now until January 12th at the funeral home, located 613 Washington Street in Michigan City or at the LaPorte County Fairgrounds in front of the horse arena.  McNeal says everyone is welcome to the event where free popcorn and hot chocolate will be provided.
