Festival of Lights – Saturday, December 3, 2016!

bannerBring the entire family and join the City of Elyria  for a fun-filled day of holiday events and activities designed to bring a smile to every age. All events and activities in Ely Square, Elyria City Hall and Finwood Estate are FREE and open to the public and are being made possible through the generous donations of individuals and organizations throughout our community and the Findley Trust.

This year’s celebration will bring back many of the traditions you remember from the past, including the children’s petting zoo complete with A GENUINE REINDEER! Events will start at Elyria City Hall at 3pm with crafts,  caroling, movies, a caricature artist, free gift bags for the first 500 children and Mayor Brinda’s FREE Storybook Giveaway! Grace Community Church will once again be providing free outerwear for children and adults inside City Hall, and the Elyria Art Works will be open until 4:30pm for you to browse the works of local artists, shop, and vote in their annual “Non-Traditional Christmas Tree Contest!”
