Join us for a weekend of Grand Opening celebration at the Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony and Welcome Santa Parade!
On Friday November 24th at 7 p.m. the City of Akron and Downtown Akron Partnership will light up the night sky over Lock 3. The half hour program will be hosted by Scott Wynn and Sarah Kay from the WQMX-FM Morning Show and will feature live music, the lighting of the City of Akron Christmas Tree and a must see pyrotechnics show. It is also tradition for guests to stay after the show and ice skate into the night.
Meet us back here on Saturday morning Saturday November 25th at 11am. This annual family tradition features over 75 units including marching bands, floats, costumed characters, dance groups and area organizations. The parade will end with Santa coming to town! Santa will stop at the main stage for the end of the parade entertainment and then come to Lock 3 to meet everyone. All Lock 3 attractions will be open.
