Can’t wait 64 days!? Christmas is coming Early at Charles Mill Lake Park!

Can’t wait 64 more days!? Luckily for families, Christmas is coming early to MWCD’s Charles Mill Lake Park the weekend of October 22nd!

The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District has a jolly weekend planned for October 21 and 22, 2022.

Enjoying the Outdoors is brought to you in partnership with Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District

Celebrate with Santa!

Christmas is coming early to Charles Mill Lake Park in late October.  Road trip to Ashland County for this experience!

Preparing for the Christmas season brings a sense of joy and excitement.  It’s a pleasure to start early and enjoy family time with the Big Guy!

In preparation for this event, one can begin telling their child that Santa is keeping track of how many kind things versus naughty they do during the days.  

This could be the perfect opportunity to have your child clean out their toy bin, closet, shoe drawer or any helpful act such as collecting old toys and books to give away in order to do a kind act to tell Santa about.

This is also another opportunity to discuss gift ideas.  This may allow for Santa and his helpers to get an early start on what the big ticket toy(s) desires are before they sell out!
