WINDOW WONDERLAND
(Admission is Free)

Reflections of the past are seen in all the storefront glass in a town where everything old is new again. Welcome to Wooster, Ohio’s wonderful Window Wonderland! The nostalgic evening transcends the historic northeast Ohio town into Christmas scenes from yesteryear. It all begins with the lighting of The Children’s Christmas Tree at 7:00 p.m. in Wooster’s public square along with a petting zoo and Herky the Clown. Hot cocoa fills the brisk evening air and is free along with coffee and cookies at several locations. Once the sky is illuminated, Santa arrives from the rooftops and comes down a firefighters’ ladder where he is met by elves and is escorted to a gazebo where kids gather by to tell Santa what they want for Christmas. The air fills with the sound of music from a children’s choir, caroling in the streets and strolling musicians. Horse and carriage rides add to the allure of the night warming everyone up for the featured event – unveiling Window Wonderland. 

The diverse cross section of downtown merchants provide more shopping variety than any mall could in a much more authentic winter wonderland where storefronts transcend into art. Until the unveiling, every storefront along every streetscape is covered in secrecy. Bring a camera to capture the sights as this event brings new meaning to window-shopping.
