Roscoe announces Candlelighting ceremonies

| November 24, 2016

COSHOCTON – Guests visiting Roscoe Village for the Christmas Candlelightings on Dec. 3, 10 and 17 will have the opportunity to experience a truly old-fashioned Christmas. Each year, visitors gather around the stage in the center of Roscoe Village to witness the lighting of the 35-foot village Christmas tree while listening to a Christmas story and beautiful music. The Honorary Candlelighter lights his/her candle from the main candle on stage then passes the flame through the crowd as each guest joins in the singing of the first verse of Silent Night until everyone’s candle is glowing. The Candlelighting ceremonies begin at 6 p.m. and are free to the public. Parking is also free. A guided Christmas tour is offered during each Candlelighting. New this year will be a handmade crafters’ event on Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The crafters will display and/or demonstrate their homemade products in the Lock Landing, located at the bottom of the Visitor Center. For further information, contact the Roscoe Village Foundation Visitor Center 740-622-7644 or 800-877-1830 or visit us on our Facebook page, Historic Roscoe Village.
