| January 30, 2019

COSHOCTON – Our Town Coshocton has announced the winners of the 2018 Miracle on Main Street Christmas Parade, Main Street Christmas Event, and the Giving Tree Event.

Of approximately 100 entrants, Coshocton County Fair Queen, Michaela Greten, took first place in the Miracle on Main Street parade for her county fair-themed float, which featured a ferris wheel.

Second place winner was the This N That 4-H club. Third place went to the Wal-Tus-Gum Girl Scouts.  Hathaway Inc. and McWane Ductile received special mention for their entries.

Cash prizes in the amounts of $100, $50, and $25 were awarded respectively to the top three winning floats, which was made possible by sponsors, Jeff Drennen Dealerships and Century National Bank.

Seventeen businesses participated in the inaugural Main Street Christmas Event Storefront Window Decorating Contest. By popular vote, the Coshocton Antique Mall received first place, and was awarded a special traveling trophy designed by Linnet’s Flowers on the Square, which they will have to defend in next year’s competition. Second place winner was Carroll’s Men’s Shop.

In conjunction with the Main Street Christmas Event, 20 Christmas trees were decorated by sponsors, and donated to local families in the Giving Tree Event.  The trees were on display throughout the day at the former civic hall, thanks to new building owner, ITM Marketing. The decorated trees were then delivered to the recipients by the Salvation Army. Winners were again decided by public vote, with Coshocton Furniture receiving first place, with second place going to the Rose of Sharon Retreat Center.

In preparation for the Christmas season, the Our Town Coshocton board, with committee members, and volunteers led by Victoria Clark, of the Coshocton Salvation Army, decorated nearly 100 trees on Main Street. The courthouse architectural lighting, a project of Our Town Coshocton, was also showcased at the Miracle on Main Street event. The courthouse will continue to be lit in special colors for various events and holidays throughout the year in accordance with a policy adopted by the county commissioners. Major sponsors of the courthouse lighting were the Coshocton Foundation, Montgomery Foundation, Common Pleas Court Judge’s Project Fund, Coshocton Rotary Foundation, and the Coshocton Kiwanis Club Foundation. The remaining funds were provided by individual donors.

Our Town Coshocton is a grassroots, volunteer-led, non-profit organization with a mission to revitalize downtown Coshocton.
