Since 1932, State Auto Insurance downtown has set up the State Auto Christmas Display and Life-Sized Nativity that is open to the public. The nativity scene and story of Christmas is a tradition that is loved by many. The display will light up each night from December 5 through January 2, 2018. The official lighting ceremony is on Tuesday, December 5 at 5:30 pm, and The Columbus Children’s Choir will be performing afterwards.
From a rooftop Santa Town with thousands of lights and hundreds of Christmas trees, to the current display which includes a life-sized Nativity scene, State Auto’s Christmas Corner is recognized around the world for its beauty and attention to artistic and historic detail. Fridays and Saturdays feature 3 choir performances and hot chocolate.
After the lighting of the display, check out the lights at the Columbus Commons, Bicentennial Park, and the Scioto Mile.
