Light up Bay Village for the holiday season

Once again this holiday season, the Christmas spirit will shine a little more brightly in Bay Village.

The Bay Village Historical Society and the Bay Village Kiwanis are asking Bay Village residents and children of all ages to join them in celebrating an old-fashioned community Christmas on three Sundays in December. A kickoff to the holiday season, these events will include the reading of holiday stories, caroling and crafts, the Kiwanis Christmas tree sale, a visit by Santa Claus and the lighting of the community tree in the Cahoon Memorial Park gazebo.

Follow Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus on their journey through the streets of Bay Village aboard a fire truck on Sunday, Dec. 4. They will leave from the Bay Lodge on Bradley Road at 2 p.m. and will arrive at the gazebo in the center of town for the holiday tree lighting ceremony around 4:30 p.m.

Rose Hill Museum will be beautifully decorated for the holiday season. “The Night Before Christmas” will be read by Preston Postle on Sundays, Dec. 4, 11 and 18. The Bay High Choraleers will sing carols at Rose Hill on Dec. 11 at 2:30 p.m.

The Bay Village Historical Society recently acquired an early 1800s loom that is in working order. Two weaving guilds, the Medina Spinning and Weaving Guild and the Lorain County Spinners and Weavers, will demonstrate spinning each Sunday afternoon. There will also be demonstrations of weaving on the large loom in the museum, as well as rug hooking demonstrations.

Have your family (even the dog!) photographed with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus aboard a newly refurbished sleigh on Dec. 11, from 2-4:30 p.m. The cost is $20, cash or check payable to the Bay Village Historical Society, collected at the event. Photos will be emailed to you. Refreshments will be available.
