The holiday season is fast approaching, and there's no better time to enjoy some fun for a good cause. As always, our real estate agents in Elkhart County want to make sure you know about all the happenings in the area, and one of our favorite holiday traditions is right around the corner – the annual Santa Run and Stroll.
Starting in 2010, the Santa Run and Stroll has become a mainstay of the holiday season in Elkhart County. This year, the run will be taking place in Bristol, Indiana for the first time, and we can't wait! Proceeds from the event go toward the Michiana Pay It Forward Foundation, an organization that helps youths in Indiana and Michigan to have a positive impact on their community and world through "paying it forward" without expectation of return.
Every year around the start of summer, the community of Elkhart, Indiana comes alive for the Elkhart Jazz Fest, one of the area's most popular annual events. With seven stages, a long list of performers, and a beautiful, historic setting, the Elkhart Jazz Festival is a fantastic place to enjoy your favorite music. This year's 31st Annual Elkhart Jazz Fest kicks off on June 22, 2018, and our real estate agents have all of the details on one of Elkhart's most anticipated annual events.
If you're a serious home buyer, it makes sense to continue your search through the holiday season. Open houses are less crowded. REALTORS® have more time and mortgage companies are a bit more flexible. If you're considering buying one of our Elkhart homes for sale, you'll find an attractive assortment of homes and you can mix your home-shopping with local holiday fun.
The holidays are also a great time to get to know Elkhart residents and community traditions. There are plenty of local holiday events. But if you have time for only one, visit Wellfield Botanic Gardens Winter Wonderland Holiday Lights 2017 presented by Welch Packaging. It's a "must-see" local Elkhart holiday event.
Our REALTORS® live and work in Elkhart. Like many residents, we enjoy the Wellfield Botanical Gardens year round. It's a wonderful place to experience nature at its most beautiful. The gardens are even more special during the holidays when beautiful lights and music transform them into a true winter wonderland.
The temperature is dropping, the days are getting shorter, and the air is cool, crisp, and refreshing.
