Let it snow! The Grand Illumination is still ON!
Are you getting cabin fever already? Take the kids out tonight as the Scioto Mile becomes a winter wonderland. Enjoy traditional carols, a stunning light show illuminating all of Bicentennial Park and a special appearance by Santa Claus! While the freshly fallen snow will make a beautiful backdrop for tonight’s festivities, please drive safely as you make your way down to the Grand Illumination.
In keeping with the city’s green initiatives, all seasonal decorations feature energy efficient LED lighting, including more than 200,000 LED lights on 150 trees. The Scioto Mile Fountain presented by the American Electric Power Foundation will come alive for the winter with holiday imagery projected onto the fountain “blossom.” New this year, the fountain will be illuminated with large lighted spheres suspended from each of the five fountain “halos.”
