Tree Lighting & Wagon Rides
The Mansfield Special Events Committee invites you to kick off the holiday season with the Annual Columbus Christmas Tree Lighting and Wagon Rides down Main Street. The event is held on the first Saturday of December at the Mansfield Community Park on East Main Street. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held on the first Sunday.
Bring your own homemade ornament and hang it on the tree. Enjoy some festive holiday music. Stop by the concession stand to purchase tickets for the wagon rides and pick up some complimentary hot cocoa and cookies while you are there. Be sure to warm up by the bonfire while you wait. And don’t forget your camera to get some photos with the big man himself, Santa! There will also be crafts and activities for the kids and more!
Tickets for the Wagon Rides are $5 per person and children 3 and under are free. Toys for Tots donations will be accepted at the event.
