Ravenna – Ravenna Balloon A-Fair’s Annual Lighted Christmas Parade will take place 7:00 p.m. Saturday, December 3, 2011.

Downtown Ravenna closes its streets and opens its doors for everyone to see our hometown all lit up, from the twinkling decorations to the hundreds of lights decorating the nighttime parade.

Leading off the parade will be the Ravenna High School Band, which also will perform on the courthouse lawn following the parade. Children of all ages, parents, and Ravenna residents will line the street in anticipation of the arrival Santa Claus & Mrs. Claus as they enter into in a horse-drawn sleigh.

Santa will be available to hear the kids’ wish lists and hand out candy canes to all the children in attendance at the Buckeye Mini Mall, located at 250 E. Main St.

Parade line up begins at 6:00 p.m. at the old Ravenna High School located on Clinton Street. The Christmas Parade steps-off at 7:00 p.m.
