It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, particularly Downtown, where thousands gathered last night to watch the city come to life — and light.
The Scioto Mile and Columbus Commons are shimmering in their holiday finery of hundreds of thousands of sparkling lights after Grand Illumination ceremonies.
Fireworks a day short of December heralded the start of the holiday season at Columbus Commons, and the sweet voices of the Columbus Children’s Choir preceded the lighting of the trees at Bicentennial Park.
Families stuffed both parks for an array of activities and music, as more than 200,000 lights blazed to life along the riverfront and 100,000-plus multicolored lights flooded the Commons.
