This post documents my experience on December 7, 2019.

At the annual Christmas in the Village

…downtown Plymouth was particularly festive.

Skaters glided across an ice-less rink…

…kids played in a miniature castle (Castle Playhouse by Gary)…

…and pretended to be king…

…adults drank in the spirits of the holidays…

…through specialty drinks that included Christmas Mimosa, Gingerbread Eggnog and Spiced Mulled Wine…

…and festival goers got a chance to expel any holiday tension with some good ole axe-throwing (Savage Society Axe Throwing).

While there were still more festival attractions, including Christmas themed photo-ops…

…entertaining musical performances…

…live reindeer…

…and ride opportunities in both horse-drawn carriages and Christmas trains…

…the main attraction was definitely the shopping.

With over 80 vendors, the shopping area took over a sizable tent…

…the downtown bank…

…the Community Building…

…where vendors filled the hallways and various rooms…

…and still there was a shopping area outside, offering clothing and crafts (R&M Clothing and Craft Boutique/Heritage Housewife)…

…holiday stockings and decor…

…fun snowmen lamps (Country Nook Greenhouse)…

…birdhouses, feeders (Yooper Unique)…

…hand-crafted hula hoops (Hoops & Company)…

…carved wooden toys (Cobb Family Fixin’s)…

…custom metal signs (Wicked Waters)…

…and some cool bullet jewelry (Kozy Mittens by Vicki).

To help get festival goers through all the shopping, quick snacks could be found along the way, including varieties of fudge…

…mini cheesecakes (Plymouth Cheesecake Lady)…

…all natural treats (for your dog) (Percy’s Cookie Jar)…

…and holiday cookies in all sorts of shapes and flavors (Fabulicious Bakery)…

…including some which seemed too pretty to eat (Nomi’s Cookies)…

…although we definitely still ate them.

For a more substantial meal, there was a handful of vendors outside with food options that included homemade pierogi, cheese melts and nachos (Pierogi Pantry/The Melted Cheese)…

…delicious barbecue and more (Hogback BBQ).

Finally, for those with children, it wasn’t a bad idea to escape the cold and visit the library…

…for some fun arts and crafts.

Just be sure to stop at the Heritage Museum before heading off…

…or you could miss a special magical visit with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.
