McLaren Port Huron Welcomes Return of Traditional Holiday Train

McLaren Port Huron, part of statewide McLaren Health Care and organizer of the Festival of Trees holiday festivities, is set to continue another community holiday tradition when it opens its holiday train display on Dec. 4. A destination for many families during the season, the community is welcome to the hospital to experience the display firsthand.

The train and its joyous display come courtesy of Dr. Percy McDonald, an ENT specialist with McLaren Port Huron, whose love of trains and models date back to his childhood in train-heavy Chicago.

The display is presented in the hospital’s South Tower Lobby alongside the Festival of Trees exhibit, and it will run daily at the following times until New Year’s Day:

  • 8 to 9 a.m.
  • 10 to 11 a.m.
  • 12 noon to 2 p.m.
  • 3 to 4 p.m.
  • 5 to 6 p.m.
  • 7 to 9 p.m.

Video and photography are encouraged, and the best results are achieved without a flash.

McLaren Port Huron President and CEO Eric Cecava, along with the entire hospital leadership team and staff, thank Dr. McDonald for sharing his love of trains and adding to the hospital’s holiday atmosphere for the benefit of the community.
