Luminaria will welcome visitors on both sides of Main Street. The highlight of the evening will be the lighting of the Peninsula Village Christmas Tree from Heritage Farms at 6:00pm on the Bronson Church green. Local residents are encouraged to bring a simple Christmas ball ornament to adorn the village’s holiday tree. All attendees should wear an “UGLY” Christmas sweater or festive holiday hat to add to the celebration. After the tree lighting, join us in the Bronson Church to hear the Woodridge High School Rhapsody Singersand the Kent Roosevelt ACEs Show Choir perform holiday tunes. Afterward, they will carol throughout the village. Costumed “strollers” from Hale Farm & Village will wander with lanterns throughout the village as they bring to life historical characters.

  • Route 66 Final Leg
    About the photo: OK, so I don't have any pics of Route 66 yet, so the above will have to do! ☺ For now, just save the date. This will be the final leg of my 2000(ish) mile Route 66 ride. I'll be starting the day in Cleveland and riding to home in Bath. I'll be on the towpath with a stop at Brecksville Station. If anyone wants to do part of that day with me, host and organize a train ride to Brecksville station from Botzum Trailhead station and then we can ride back together.
