Each year, Cedarville Ohio takes on the challenge of decorating itself in preparation for the Christmas season. With giant colorful garlin candles hanging from street lights, large Christmas trees in shopping windows, and with lights dangling from signs and entry ways, Cedarville is nearly ready for its second largest event of the year, Little Town of Lights.
For a small town of only 4000, we know how to do things well, and that includes a night dedicated to the celebration of Christmas. Like a Lacey Chabert Hallmark movie, the entire town gathers for a night of festivities giving a small town feel to this local friendly community.
So what is Little Town of Lights, you say? Simply put, only the best Christmas celebration ever. Featuring nearly every local business on main street, starting from Subway down to Cassie Jo’s, each store has the opportunity to highlight their business by attracting customers with free Christmas refreshments and holiday spirit. Hundreds of people will walk up and down the street visiting the stores and gathering with friends.
Not every store chooses to participate, however most shops don’t miss out on this opportunity to advertise and create brand awareness. It is very family friendly featuring a parade, Santa photo opp at Beans N Cream, and a hayride that families can enjoy that strolls up and down the streets of the town.
So come on out, and be a part of the festive atmosphere and enjoy a night on the town in Cedarville, Ohio. Check out the official Little Town of Lights schedule below:
