Back To Front Page


Duneland’s Hometown Holiday Celebration will be held on Saturday, Nov. 30, with events coordinated by the Duneland Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Chesterton; the Chesterton Police, Parks and Street departments; and Chamber organizations and volunteers.

Enjoy shopping the outdoor holiday market starting at 11 a.m. and running until 7 p.m. While there enjoy free carriage rides through historic Downtown Chesterton from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Both will take place in the Chamber parking lot at 220 Broadway in Chesterton.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony will begin at 5 p.m. in Thomas Centennial Park, then the Twilight Christmas Parade will step off at 5:15 p.m. Floats will populate this night-time parade, including all manner of lighted cars, trucks, wagons and fire engines, as well as plenty of walking families and service organizations. An impressive series of decorated fire engines will round out the lineup, with Santa Claus himself making an appearance on the final float.

Santa Claus will receive visitors in his house on Broadway in Thomas Centennial Park from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and children may also visit Santa every Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and then from 1 to 3 p.m., leading up to Christmas.

Continue the celebration by shopping local. Eat and shop your way across Duneland all day Saturday with most participating businesses offering special Small Business Saturday deals. Shoppers should visit the Duneland Chamber’s info booth, which will be set up within the Holiday Market, to receive a “shop small” bag with details for the day that includes an open house map and other information (while supplies last).
