Public invited to first ever Holiday Happy Hour

| December 1, 2014

COSHOCTON – Looking for a good party to attend during the holiday season? Look no further than the Coshocton County Safe Communities Holiday Happy Hour. This first-time, non-alcoholic event will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4, in the lower level of the River Front Lounge and Restaurant located 51 Pine St.

The public is invited to join this free and festive event that will kick off the holiday season without alcohol. Teams made up of local businesses and organizations will compete to create non-alcoholic cocktails, or “mocktails.” Local celebrity judges will determine the team with the tastiest drink by giving the “Judge’s Choice Award” and bragging rights to the winning team. This year’s celebrity judges include Municipal Court Judge Timothy France, Emily McBurney, victim/witness coordinator, with the county prosecutor’s office, and Lt. Matt Boyd with the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The public is encouraged to participate by attending the event and voting for their favorite mocktail. The team with the most votes from the public will receive the “People’s Choice Award.”

Christy Mosier, coalition coordinator, said that Safe Communities is a new traffic safety partnership in the county and Holiday Happy Hour is an event that has been created to be a fun party atmosphere combined with a message. “We want to promote the idea that parties and celebrations don’t have to include alcohol to be fun.” Mosier added that the Safe Communities Coalition also would like to use the Holiday Happy Hour event as a reminder to party goers that if they drink alcohol to make sure they designate a driver ahead of time or make other plans for a safe ride home.
