The Grandview Heights Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony will not be held as an in-person event, but the city has great plans to set the city aglow with the Be the Light in Grandview Heights Holiday Lighting as well as lots of other holiday throughout the season!
The Grandview Heights Parks and Recreation Department has joined forces with Destination Grandview, Courtyard by Marriott Columbus OSU, and Pathways Financial Credit Union to encourage the community to SHOP LOCAL this holiday season with Grandview Heights-OPOLY.
The game runs November 27 through December 14! Can you win the game of Grandview Heights-OPOLY by visiting each participating business before time runs out?! This is a noncontact event all based on an app. It does require you to visit each store and find their clue to be entered to win 4- $100 value baskets and 36- $25 value baskets. Register now for up to date information on the game!
Be the Light in Grandview Heights Holiday Lighting
The Grandview Heights Holiday Tree will still be lit on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 7:00 pm, but so will the rest of the city – and they need your help from home!
They are asking that all residents stay home to help Be the Light in Grandview Heights and progressively light up the city from west to east. Decorate your homes and flip your holiday lights at the times listed on the map at this link. Each section in the map will turn their lights on at an exact time in hopes to make Grandview Heights LIGHT UP. They will have a drone overhead to capture the lighting.
