Join Us for the Grand Illumination!


Join Mayor Michael B. Coleman for a celebration of the holiday season and Grand Illumination of Bicentennial Park, the Scioto Mile Promenade, City Hall and Columbus Commons. Enjoy strolling performers, traditional carols and a special appearance by Santa! In the spirit of giving, support the Empty Bowls project by purchasing a piece of handcrafted pottery and receive a bowl of signature mac ‘n cheese compliments of Milestone 229. All proceeds benefit the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Culminate the evening with a holiday lights walking tour led by Mayor Coleman and Santa, departing from Bicentennial Park, strolling along the Promenade and concluding at Columbus Commons. Complimentary hot beverages and holiday sweets will be available along the walking tour!
