Christmas in the Park is a Bellbrook tradition that makes cookies seem a little sweeter and lights in the park a little more sparkly. We will kick off the festival with our park lighting ceremony to welcome Santa to the park with Bellbrook hospitality! Local music groups will fill the park with seasonal carols while Santa meets with his clients. Free activities for kids and families will include: crafts, gingerbread contest tent, and hot chocolate. We will accept winter clothing items that will be donated to the Bellbrook Family Resource Center benefiting local families in need this winter. There will also be a bake sale that all proceeds directly benefit the BHS service group “Partnerships for Success”, who also volunteer to organize this event with the park district. No registration is required to attend. Spend the evening with family and friends getting into the spirit of the holidays.
