Here comes the Winter Party on McCarty in Saginaw Townships Winter Party ...

Thomas Roy is heading to Saginaw for holiday celebrations.

The president of Saginaw Area Fireworks who organizes the Fourth of July celebration which has remained a staple of the population for many generations now oversees events he hopes to become a new annual tradition... albeit with much more cold weather.

The outdoor event on McCarty, held this Saturday, Dec. 4, will include an outdoor ceremony with Santa, kid-friendly craft projects, adult-friendly beverages, live music, food, and refreshments, all hosted in a warmed tent centered near Mackinaw.

Roy said, the "three and 10 p.m. gathering event will include fireworks launched by the same crew responsible for the Fourth of July display.

The event involves a number of organizations, including the Saginaw Township Business Association, a group where Roy serves as president. He says the Saginaw Township Soccer Association plays an important role in establishing the event, considering the outdoor soccer complex the group manages.

Winter Party on McCarty provided a great opportunity for more families and a great event every year.

The business association hosted an outdoor tree lighting ceremony in Saginaw Township, first at Green Acres and then at Horizons Conference Center. The idea for Winter Party on McCarty developed from an earlier tradition which ran out because of logistical difficulties.

The event was planned Dec. 4. Leaving the gathering to a full-fledged party left with a challenge to maintain at both sites, creating the result if the event became a part of the business agenda.

The summertime event was the place of a popular music concert series, which spans July to August and is built with the presence of the venue's location, so organizers decided to use its name and name brand Party on McCarty to bring a winter theme to this summertime event.

The tree was originally planted by Thomas Township-based Kluck Nursery this week. The tree will last for the remainder of the holiday week.

Roy said he hopes his tradition will become an audience captured during Holidays in the Heart of City.

The tree grows every year, as does the event.

Roy said that he hopes to re-imagine 3,000 people attending this first Winter Party on McCarty.

Organizers encourage the parking at Valley Lutheran High School, situated across from McCartys football complex. Roy said buses will bring people between the parking lot and the soccer field complex, keeping them warm before they reach the heated tent.

With the Fourth of July celebration, Roy said he is going to raise some funds to support the winter party on McCarty, which features a $20,000 budget already attached to that sponsor is Serra Chevrolet Saginaw. The summertime party doesn't have any of the remaining sponsors already.

Approximately one-tenth of the budget for the aerial display spent on the July 4 event.

"It'll be exciting," Roy said of Winter Party on McCarty. "A lot of people are swung hard and volunteering their time to make that happen. I'm looking forward to it."

The schedule for Winter Party on McCarty is the following:

The crowd ranges from three to five people.
