We’re making a list, checking it twice, of the best Christmas films of all time. There are many things to do in Northwest Indiana to celebrate the holidays, from festivals to Holiday Concerts and special family fun happenings. Kids will enjoy visiting with Santa where there are many opportunities to see (Santa) all season long. There are Tree Lighting ceremonies in every city, and many Art and Craft Shows to enjoy. We invite you Click on these links (these blue letters) to find more information and keep clicking around our website.
We believe one of the best things about Christmas is the family traditions that build up around it, creating happy memories that last long after the last of the Christmas is gone. So, continue your family tradition or start a new one, and we gather as many special ideas as we can from PanoramaNOW’s 34 years experience in Northwest Indiana to celebrate Christmas 2020 ! We promise you’ll go home with memories that last a lifetime.
