The holidays are in full swing and WinterFest is underway!  WinterFest is a Hancock County tradition; this year bringing back your favorite activities, such as meeting Santa and taking a horse drawn wagon ride as well as a few new surprises!  Festivities take place every Monday and Friday from 6 – 8 p.m. through December 22.

Kiwanis Santa’s House

St. Andrews Church

The first stop during WinterFest always has to be to see Santa and Mrs. Claus!  Children can sit on Santa’s lap and tell him all they are wishing for this Christmas.  There will be sweet treats and hot chocolate for all who visit as well as a small surprise as well!

Horse Drawn Wagon Rides

St. Andrews Church

Nothing will put you in the holiday spirit more than taking a horse-drawn wagon ride and seeing the beauty of winter weather!  Wagon rides are free and a great family activity; just make sure you are bundled up!

Downtown Promotions

Downtown Findlay

When visiting Santa and Mrs. Claus make sure you pick up your downtown voucher!  Each guest will receive a coupon to a participating downtown business that is featuring a spherical promotion that night!  You can also finish up (or start!) your holiday shopping!  Many businesses stay open late for WinterFest visitors.

City of Findlay Christmas Tree

Dorney Plaza

Is there anything more beautiful than our City of Findlay Christmas tree?  Although the tree lighting ceremony was a couple weeks ago, swing by Dorney Plaza and see the tree all lit up and decorated!
