Runs Through December 15
Municipal Services Center, Kenny Road Parking Lot
The first order of holiday business is Santa’s Mailbox. If your child wants to receive a reply to their holiday wish list from Santa—and who doesn’t?—you can drop the letter off at Santa’s special mailbox in the Kenny Road parking lot of the Municipal Services Center. With the letter, include your child’s full name and complete address with zip code as well as an un-affixed stamp so that Santa’s response makes it back to you.
6-8:30 p.m., Friday, December 6
Mallway Park on Arlington Avenue will be the most festive place in Upper Arlington, as our holiday tree is officially lit for the season and local choirs sing festive carols. Enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides, visits with Santa Claus, a live reindeer display, a bonfire with s’mores, ice sculpting demonstrations, and children’s activities, including a Giant Human Snow Globe!
Here’s to a safe and joyous holiday season for all.
