The City of Stow is excited to kick off the holiday season with its first-ever “Glow in Stow” event. The holiday lighting event will take place at Stow City Hall and City Center Complex on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019, from 6-8 p.m. The tree will be lit at 6:15 p.m., followed immediately by Santa and Mrs. Claus arriving by fire truck.

The family-friendly event features all of the best that the season has to offer. There will be hot cocoa, towering stilt walkers, train rides around Christmas land, ice sculptures, caroling, pony rides, petting zoo, twinkling trees and more.

“This is such a wonderful time of year for celebrations, and we are looking forward to officially launching the holiday season for Stow with this holiday tree lighting,” said City of Stow Mayor John Pribonic. “We are going to have plenty of activities and fun for the whole family to enjoy. Be sure to dress warm and join us on Dec. 5!”

“Glow in Stow” is free to attend. However, Stow-Munroe Falls N.I.C.E will be accepting donations of gift cards, winter hats, gloves and cash for students in need. Quiet areas and inclusive resources will be available before and during the event for those who may need them.
