2017's egg hunt packed 25,000 eggs, each one containing a fun surprise! Everything given away at this event was donated by local companies, and those who would like to donate for next year can do so by mailing checks made out to Norway Community Easter Egg Hunt to Becky Kleikamp at N3140 District 5 Road in Norway, MI, 49870. Please include your name so that you can be listed as a donor. If you would like to donate toys, candy, or eggs, call Becky at 906-563-7289 to determine a drop-off location. Many thanks to donors, and thanks in advance to future donors. Organizers Becky and Terry Kleikamp credit the donors--of which there are many--for the ability to hold this event. Click here to see the long list of 2016 sponsors, and here to visit the Norway Community Easter Egg Hunt's Facebook page. The egg hunt is open to all, with expectation of two to three thousand children to come out and hunt for eggs. Bring the whole family to the park at 12 noon to allow time for parking, entrance, and age-group location; kids up to ten years old are invited and encouraged to participate in the hunt. Count down to 1:00 sharp, then watch the collection happen. Good luck, and more importantly, have fun!

Live performances by various artists are held at the Band Shell on Main Street almost every week through the summer. Some seating is available--but show the musicians your appreciation by dancing to their tunes!
The first Christmas fireworks are set off in the evening, followed by the Christmas parade. And, if your family would like to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus after the parade, the famous couple will have been waiting all year to give each of our children a warm "Hello!" Bring the kids to City Hall, where the jolly pair will be waiting.
Mr. & Mrs. Claus will be at City Hall immediately following the parade. Parade participants can simply show up and line up at St. Mary’s church dates and time to be announced. Warm and happy holidays!
