| December 7, 2016

COSHOCTON – Our Town Coshocton’s first annual ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas event will be held downtown Saturday, Dec. 10, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Children’s activities kick off at 9:30 a.m. in the ArtPARK with an ornament hunt for kids up to age 10 (please bring a Christmas gift bag to hold found ornaments). Free donuts and cocoa will also be available to all children in attendance. At 10:30 a.m., Santa Claus will take the stage for a special reading of Clement Moore’s poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” After the reading, Santa will mingle with children and hand out a small gift to each child. Children are also welcome to do a snowman craft provided by the Coshocton Public Library before heading on a self-guided tour of the library’s “Snowmen at Christmas” story walk down Main Street.

The event also features the Sugar-Plum Shop Hop where shoppers can earn entry tickets for a chance to win prizes by making purchases at participating shops on Main Street. Raffle prizes include a marble-top sofa and end tables, a hand-held Riccar vacuum, an antique glass dish, an outdoor decor flag pole with 12 flags, a Sofia Bella handbag, an Android tablet, a custom Christmas ornament, a throw blanket, a basket of salon products, store gift cards donated by several businesses, and a grand prize of Dean’s Jewelry diamond earrings valued at $599 and donated by Our Town Coshocton. Prizes will be on display throughout the day at the Coshocton Village Inn and Suites where the drawing will be held at 3 p.m. Additional entry tickets will be available for purchase. Winners do not need to be present at the time of drawing and will be notified promptly.
