All-A-Glow for the Holidays in Rocky River

Magnificat High School's Art Club tree.

Christmas is right around the corner. It's the time of year to enjoy Christmas decorations and Christmas trees in all their splendor! The City of Rocky River's "All-A-Glow" holiday lighting ceremony is to be held on Friday, December 6, at City Hall at 6 p.m. The event includes a visit by Santa, holiday music, refreshments and crafts, with trees on display indoors at the Rocky River Senior Center.

For the second year, the senior center is hosting a Festival of Trees, 25 trees designed and decorated by area businesses and organizations.  The Magnificat High School tree and the Beck Center tree show what can be designed using the concept of "sustainable." Rocky River Public Library is also sponsoring a tree for the second year.

Jody Hobson, coordinator of the Festival of Trees, said she was delighted by the creativity of everyone. She continued, "Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I feel blessed to be able to use the gifts God has given me."

Families can come in, see the spectacular trees, and take photos. The Festival of Trees begins December 2 and runs through December 30. Rocky River Senior Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
