Santa Claus Arrives in Lorain – 1946
Here’s some proof of that. Above is the full-page ad that ran in the Lorain Journal on Tuesday, November 26, 1946 – 69 years ago – announcing the kickoff to the city’s Christmas celebration.
The ad charmingly provides a window to the Downtown Lorain of the mid-1940s.
Happily, the Lorain Growth Corporation has been working hard trying to make new holiday memories that people will reminisce about someday, with the 2015 Light Up Lorain Waterfront Winterfest. The agenda is pretty impressive.
The fun begins on Saturday, November 28, 2015 with the big parade at 4:30. Both Saturday and Sunday are crammed with a lot of fun – fireworks, skating, ice sculpture, horse drawn carriage rides, the annual lights at Lakeview Park, a Singing Angels concert, a big brass swing band, and much more.
Here’s the link to the official website that has the schedule and all the details.
