Tiffin, Ohio — The Seneca Regional Chamber of Commerce and Destination Seneca County, in partnership with Andrew Kalnow, have announced the 2022 holiday lighting experience that will take place in Downtown Tiffin this Friday, Dec. 2 beginning at 5:15 p.m.

This year, South Washington Street will be blocked off to allow for a safer and more enjoyable viewing experience for those in attendance.

The evening will start at the Seneca County Justice Center with holiday music from Beth Mattia, a reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, an appearance from Santa, and the lighting of Tiffin’s Christmas Tree and the Seneca County Justice Center.

This year will also feature the return of The CommuniTree Project. The CommuniTree Project, a Chamber initiative introduced last year, looks to bring the community together for the holiday season. More than 300 ornaments will be hung on the tree that were decorated by fifth grade students from Tiffin City Schools, Calvert Catholic Schools, and Seneca East Local Schools, along with Chamber member businesses. Those who have an ornament hanging on the tree are invited to attend the lighting ceremony to find their ornament hanging and to be recognized.

Once the tree lighting ceremony at the Justice Center concludes, attendees are welcome to make their way to the East Tower and National Corner to see the spaces lit up with holiday lights. Frost Parkway will also be lit up for the first time of the season during the event and attendees are invited to check out Frost Village to complete the full holiday lighting experience.

Chamber member, Tim Horton’s, will be providing free hot chocolate for attendees during the event. The conclusion of the holiday tree lighting experience will kick off the start of the first ever Kris Kringle Markt in Downtown Tiffin taking place on December 2 and 3. The festival will be an open-air holiday market highlighting German/Bavarian-inspired Christmas offerings.

Visitors can enjoy the sounds of live holiday music, the aroma of German food, late-night shopping, children’s activities, and the ambiance of an old-world German Christmas.
