Fall Program Schedule Set for Port Huron Recreation

After necessary adaptations amid COVID-19, the Port Huron Recreation Department will continue to  provide recreational opportunities to residents virtually. Popular fall programs such as dance, art & crafts,  cooking, and belly dance classes have been adapted to take place via ZOOM Meeting, YouTube, and Facebook.  Other successful programs will be hybrid where interaction will take place online but the program can be done safely outdoors. These include Walk Michigan, Drive-in Movies, and Halloween Stroll. 

“The goal is to keep everyone active and to have some fun during these unprecedented times,” said  Kati Gardner, Recreation Department supervisor. 

For the very first time, the department is offering its popular summer event, Walk Michigan, during  fall. The program nominates eight different routes around town where participants can take an one-to-two mile walk and receive a prize once a minimum of five routes are completed.  

Back by popular demand, free Drive-in Movies will continue at McMorran south parking with Jumanji on September 24th and Hocus Pocus on October 22. Concessions will be provided by Sperry’s Moviehouse. 

Finally, the department’s annual trick or treating event, Halloween Stroll, is being adapted to follow social distancing guidelines and to comply to outdoor gathering limits. More details on this event will soon be  released.  

“As local and state regulations evolve amid COVID-19, we will continue to look for ways to provide  our children and families with more great recreation opportunities this season,” said Nancy Winzer, Port Huron  Parks & Recreation Director. “The key is being creative,” she said. 

Registration for Walk Michigan, belly dance class, and other fall programs is available through the  department’s website at www.porthuronrec.com. For more information, participants are welcome to call the  recreation department at (810) 984-9760 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
