Grand Illumination

Celebrate the holiday season in downtown Columbus as thousands of twinkling lights illuminate the Scioto Mile. 

The Grand Illumination will kick off with holiday inspired entertainment and activities for all ages, and a special appearance by Santa! Activities presented by Columbus Blue Jackets, Bring the Farm to You, McKnight Outdoor Education Center and many more will begin at 5:00 p.m. in Bicentennial Park. 

Support the Empty Bowls project by purchasing a piece of handcrafted pottery and a bowl of warm soup, with all proceeds benefitting the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. 

The lights will be viewable nightly, from dusk until dawn, December 2, 2016 through January 8, 2017. Grand Illumination is presented by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department.
