41st Annual Holiday Candle Lighting kicks off Christmas Season

Candlelight ceremony in Roscoe Village in 2009

 

We will be heading for Historic Roscoe Village in Coshocton to be the host of the 41st annual candle lighting ceremony that kicks off the holiday season in this popular tourist attraction.  The big show gets underway Saturday, December 4th  at 6PM outdoors in the center of the restored canal town.

It works this way I will be on a stage and light a candle.  All the lights in downtown go off and the only illumination is my single candle which I then touch to candles being held by visitors surrounding the stage.  They in turn light the candles of others and in moments the light of that single candle becomes a wave of light that sweeps down the street and up the side of the surrounding hill.  It is a moving and imp;ressive sight and a wonderful family activitiy to begin your Christmas Season.

I will be arriving at Roscoe Village at 4 PM to go to the Welcome Center where I will be meeting visitors and signing copies of my new book, “Tales From The Road”

There will be a host of things to see and do at the candle lighting ceremony, including visits by Santa, local choirs and lots of good food.  I hope you will join us.  You can learn more about Roscoe Village at their website, www.roscoevillage.com

    If, during the posting hiatus, you happen to pop up at the Holiday Circlefest on December 5, I’m planning on making that my 100th festival of the year. They’re supposed to have gingerbread cookie decorating!

    I even made a xtranormal (the site) video about it, which you can see here.

    I hope to see you there.

    Good luck on the maintenance and I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Sincerely,

    Kristian
