Ohio Holiday Festival Weekend: December 14-17, 2023

Last Weekend Before Christmas! Finish the Shopping and Take in the Lights!

Welcome back, Festival Fans.

This is going to be a short post because not much is that different from the weeks before.

Holiday Light Shows are continuing from last week and they are joined with some Holiday Craft Shows, Reptile Shows, a Christmas Festival in Loveland and a Christkindlmarkt in Sandusky.

So spend your time finishing up on the Christmas shopping, make sure you have your cake and cookie orders in and then go out and see some Light Shows this weekend before you get too caught up in all the holiday events!

****

Meanwhile, in-between these weekly posts, I’m been continuing to add State Festival Guides. I’m currently working on Texas now and it’s a doozy. Hopefully, I’ll have that ready for next week.

This week, I can present you with the most recently completed Festival Guide…

Enjoy and Share!

If you are traveling out of Ohio this weekend, then be sure to look at this week’s post of my sister site – Festival Guides and Reviews – to see what’s going on beyond Ohio this weekend. You can find that post at – https://festivalguidesandreviews.com/festival-weekend-121723

Have a wonderful weekend.

Until next week…

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
