Local festivities to ring in holidays Dec. 3

The City of Broadview Heights will host its annual community holiday event Saturday, Dec. 3, from 3-5 p.m. at the community amphitheater, located at 9543 Broadview Rd.

The free, fun, family event will feature complimentary refreshments and guests will have the opportunity to have their family photo taken in front of an enchanting holiday backdrop. A photographer will be on hand to allow everyone to be in the photo. Children are also encouraged to bring their letters for Santa Claus to drop off in the special mailbox to the North Pole.

Santa will oversee the festivities from his perch atop one of the city’s fire trucks before he sets off at 5 p.m. for a Christmas parade around town. For information about this event and a parade map, visit broadview-heights.org closer to the date of the event.
