Christmas in the Park

| Family  Events  

Christmas in the Park is a Bellbrook tradition that makes cookies seem a little sweeter and lights in the park a little more sparkly.  Kick off the evening with a park lighting ceremony and 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, ornament decorating contest, hot chocolate, popcorn and more!

Bring your gently used winter clothing items to donate to the Bellbrook Family Resource Center, benefitting local families in need this winter. Receive raffle tickets for each item donated and enter to win fabulous prizes from local businesses.

Indulge in a sweet treat at the “Partnerships for Success” bake sale. All proceeds directly benefit this BHS service group who organize this holiday event with the support of the park district. 

No registration is required to attend.
