Holiday Events in Columbus: Family-Friendly Activities at Easton
For many, the start of November marks the beginning of the most wonderful time of year. Here at Easton, we’re already in full holiday mode, making final preparations for several celebratory festivities and events that we hope will make your holidays merry and bright. If you’re looking for family-friendly holiday events in Columbus, mark your calendars for these upcoming activities at Easton.
Easton Holiday Lighting Ceremony
The holiday tree lighting in Easton’s Town Square is a time-honored tradition and beloved Columbus event. Come experience the magic of the holidays and immerse yourself in a memorable experience complete with a holiday parade featuring larger-than-life balloons, entertainers and, of course, Santa! All will lead to the celebratory lighting of our iconic 50-foot tree, which features 7,500 lights and 1,000 ornaments.
Carriage Rides at Easton
Hear those sleigh bells ring ting tingling through Easton on our horse-drawn carriages! Gently ride through our beautifully decorated North District for a nice, romantic evening, or take your family on a holiday adventure. Children 15 years or younger ride free with a paying adult.
Photos with Santa at Easton
A staple of the holidays for any family is watching your child’s eyes light up upon meeting the mystical Santa Claus at Easton! When you arrive at the Town Center, check in with Saint Nick’s helpers to hold your place in line. You’ll then be put in a virtual line, and will receive a text when it’s your turn to meet him. That way, you can get more holiday shopping done instead of waiting in those long lines!
Holiday Entertainers at Easton
We love spreading holiday cheer! Our entertainers at Easton range from caroling quartets to talented musicians playing all your favorite Christmas songs. Bring the kids and join in the fun for a warm, fuzzy feeling that only the holidays can provide!
Giving Is Always In Fashion at Easton
Each year, we partner with the Salvation Army to put the ‘fun’ in fundraising, with our Giving Is Always in Fashion event. The Army’s signature Red Kettles will be placed throughout the center, while roving musicians and special celebrity bell ringers spread joy to all who pass!
Chanukah Celebration at Easton
Join Easton and Chabad of Columbus for a special menorah lighting. It’s a family party with sufganiot, dreidels, raffle prizes, music, dancing and refreshments!
