Celebrating the Holiday Season at the Snowflake Festival

The 2023 Annual Snowflake Festival was held on Saturday, December 2, 2023. Sponsored  by the East Palestine Area Chamber of Commerce, it was a fun-filled day packed with a variety of holiday activities happening all over the village. It kicked off with a pancake breakfast with Santa in the morning and Santa’s Secret Workshop at the Elementary School gym from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The Holiday Large Scale Train Display at the First Church of Christ was a popular attraction. The Gingerbread Contest at the East Palestine Library and the Snowflake Trail Scavenger Hunt at various businesses, organizations and places of interest were a big hit with attendees and they enjoyed holiday shopping in all the downtown stores. If you missed breakfast, you could have cookies with Santa, and then enjoy horse drawn trolley rides through the village. The day ended with community caroling and a nighttime Christmas parade.

Another successful community event with friends and neighbors celebrating the holiday season together in East Palestine.
