It’s Christmas Time in North Ridgeville

North Ridgeville was bustling with activity last Saturday as hundreds of shoppers visited many locations that took part in the North Ridgeville Chamber of Commerce 23rd Annual Holiday on the Ridge.

The kick-off event was at Lake Ridge Academy for the opening ceremony with flags and the pledge of allegiance and a Christmas Market organized by one of their international students. From a pancake breakfast by the Kiwanis/Key Club at North Ridgeville Academic Center with children’s crafts and photos with Santa to the South Central Park Tree Lighting at 5 p.m., the day was filled with loads of places to go and things to see.

Many craft shows filled the day, along with stops at various merchants and vendors, all decked out in their holiday best.

Check out some of fun along the way on the 2023 “Holiday on the Ridge.”

Annual Tree Lighting

The Holiday on the Ridge came to a close with the Annual Tree Lighting at the gazebo in South Central Park at 5 p.m. The NRHS choir kicked off the event with Christmas carols and area scouts decorating the tree. Mayor Corcoran and Santa then lite the gazebo and Christmas tree. Children (and dogs) were invited to line up to have a photo with Santa.
