Pickerington is full of Christmas spirit at the Pickerington Holiday Gathering and Tree Lighting on Friday, December 1, 2023 from 5 pm – 8 pm.
There is fun for the whole family in the village, and local businesses will offer activities and treats (and a place to warm up).
Some of the seasonal sights and sounds include the strolling carolers, Lighted Holiday Stroll, with over a block of lighted holiday inflatables, ice carving demonstrations, live nativity, reindeer, and more.
Catch rides on the horse-drawn wagons or the circulating hop-on/hop-off trolley.
Shop the Indoor Holiday Gift Market, and visit shops and restaurants in town.
Kids will enjoy crafts and holiday stores, cookie decorating, and rides on the mini firetruck.
The Historical Society Museum is open with North Pole Village displays and stories for kids.
Don’t forget about Santa! Take your own photo with Santa for free, or have one taken for a $10 donation to charity. You’ll get a 5×7 picture printed while you wait with the donation.
The City Tree Lighting is at 5:30 pm at the gazebo. The event also includes free popcorn and hot chocolate, and hot dogs with a donation for the Lion’s Club.
