The cards will be installed in an upright (vertical) position. Cards should be delivered by November 7 and can be picked up after January 9, 2023. Any cards remaining after January 25 may be disposed of by the city. Holiday Trees are available again this year for local businesses and organizations to decorate, adding to the festive atmosphere of the Celery Flats Historical Area. Contact Portage Parks & Recreation by November 1 at (269) 329-4522 for more information and to reserve a tree (while supplies last).
