The ..... Joy of Christmas ..... is Here!
The 2013 "Joy of Christmas" holiday light display at Firestone Park in our fine City, in its 4th fabulous year, will open at 7:00 pm on Friday, November 22, and run every Thursday through Sunday from 6:00 - 9:00 pm until December 29. Open every night beginning Dec 19. A donation of $8 per car at admission is requested.
Over 60 delightful lighted displays, the Gingerbread House and Santa's Ice Castle will again be featured as stops during this year's show. Santa will listen to Christmas wishes in the Ice Castle every night through December 23rd, and family crafts and holiday refreshments will also be offered every night. The Gingergread House along the light path will display over 100 amazing handmade cookie houses.
All Aboard! Ride the Santa Express, the new miniature train ride for kids, inside the Train Depot Pavilion, one of three stops on the light show path in the park. Children will be able to ride the kid-friendly holiday train beginning December 20 for a $3 donation per child. The ride will be operated by Train Up a Child LLC.
JOIN THE CHRISTMAS HAYRIDE! Preview the light show on an old-fashioned haywagon on Thursday, November 21, 6:00 - 9:00 pm. Meet at the admission gate. Just $5 per person. (Children under 13 must ride with an adult.) Sponsor for this fun hayride is Catalpa Farms.
Want to volunteer? It truly "takes a village" and literally thousands of volunteer hours to put on our annual light display in the park. If you would like to join the work (and the fun!) contact the tourism bureau office at 330-482-2282 and volunteer to help get light displays ready, join a light-show work day at the park, become a ticket-taker during the show or volunteer in the Gingerbread House or Santa's Ice Castle!
Proceeds from the Joy of Christmas events will go toward restoring the duck pond and other family-oriented structures at our beautiful city Park.
