Grove City slates weekend events to celebrate Christmas spirit

Justin Gallo of the Grove City Division of Police are pictured Nov. 24 with donated toys for the seventh annual Cram the Cruiser holiday gift drive, which will benefit youth under the care of Franklin County Children Services. Cram the Cruiser on Dec. 5 is one of the events in Grove City's upcoming weekend of activities to celebrate the Christmas season.

After taking a year off from any Christmas-themed events last year because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Grove City is seeking to start this year’s holiday season with a collaborative celebration.

In previous years, the city and the Heart of Grove City would hold their respective events – the annual community parade and the Mistletoe Market – separately. 

This holiday season, both groups plan to hold their events in tandem, beginning Dec. 3 and continuing through the weekend.

“This is the first year that the Heart of Grove City and the city have really teamed up to try to make this a weekend-long event,” said Grove City recreation supervisor Kelly Sutherland. “Usually it was just the day, and they had the Mistletoe Market and then we had the parade and the tree lighting on Saturday night; it was kind of two different events.
