It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Take advantage of the season and experience these can’t-miss holiday happenings in Columbus!1.) Go tree shopping! Check out choose & cut Christmas tree farms like Mr. Tree Farm in Blacklick, Timbuk Farms in Granville, or Cackler Farms in Delaware.
2.) Enjoy Grand Illumination at the Scioto Mile! The lights are just gorgeous by the riverfront with the Leveque Tower lit up in red and green in the background.
3.) Step into Chinese culture and experience silk lanterns, traditional performances, and tasty food at the Ohio Lantern Festival through January 2!

5.) Okay, so this one isn’t in Columbus, but it MUST be mentioned! Venture out of town to Clifton to see the Clifton Mills lights! You won’t regret it 🙂
