Santa Claus is coming to Groveport!

The city of Groveport will host its Heritage Holiday on Dec. 4 from 3-6 p.m. in Heritage Park, 551 Wirt Road in Groveport.

Santa Claus, along with Mayor Lance Westcamp, will make a grand entrance to the event on a Madison Township fire truck at 3 p.m. Kids can visit with Santa Claus in the log house from 3-6 p.m.

“The festival promotes community pride. Heritage Holiday brings the community together to participate in holiday-themed activities, to view the city’s tree lighting, and make memories,” said Kristiauna Trelay, Groveport Community Affairs executive assistant.

Trelay said that new to the event this year is the addition of two live music performances – by Wade & Darr from 3-4:15 p.m. and Mora & Dalton from 4:30-5:30 p.m. – on Heritage Park’s main stage.

“Also new will be an iceless skating rink in the Heritage Park parking lot,” said Trelay. “We are also excited to welcome the Paddock Pub to the event. They will be providing free beverages and cookies at the park’s shelter house.”

The Groveport Madison Area Community Choir will perform carols in front of the Christmas tree in Heritage Park from 5:30-6 p.m. and Santa and the mayor will conduct the annual tree lighting at 6 p.m.

Heritage Holiday also features hayrides around Palm Pond, face painting, ice carvings, kids’ crafts, and food trucks.
