It’s Christmas Time In Newark, Ohio.

Newark, Ohio Courthouse Lit For Christmas

Licking County Courthouse Lit For 2011 Christmas Season

The 2011 Lighting Of the Courthouse event is over. Santa Claus arrived as scheduled for his annual visit to light the Licking County, Ohio Courthouse. As usual, there were a few technical glitches to work out, but with the help of the crowd cheering on, they got it lit and it will remain so for the rest of the Christmas season.

It’s become an annual tradition for Newark, Ohio to usher in the Christmas season with the lighting of the courthouse. Donations are made all year long and events like the Lite The Nite car show are held to pay for the lighting. The community makes quite an effort to ensure that this happens every year. The end result is a stunningly beautiful display and a fun memory made for everyone. 

Carolers sang while the crowd anxiously waited for Santa’s arrival. Santa made contact by radio and the fire truck had to pick him up after some difficulties with the sleigh. The fireman were happy to pick him up with the fire truck. I even seen Homeland Security there to ensure his safety. A police escort was also there to assist. 

If you’re town doesn’t have a Christmas tradition like Newark, Ohio, you’re missing out. It’s a great time kids and adults alike. Unlike big events, it’s just a few hours out of the season that’s for everyone, but especially the kids. What other time of year do kids get to see a large gathering of adults that are for the most part, just having fun? 

Here are some videos. Not the greatest quality, but good enough to get an idea of what the Christmas gathering in Newark, Ohio is all about.
