Santa will fly into New Carlisle

Enon, South Charleston holiday events this weekend, too.


New Carlisle officials are hoping to draw people to the city this weekend with several annual traditions that include a parade, visits with Santa and an open house provided by area businesses.

The event is one of several Christmas activities taking place in Clark County on Saturday. Enon and South Charleston will also host events throughout the day.

On Saturday, New Carlisle residents are encouraged to visit the Andy Barnhart Memorial Airport at 9:30 a.m. to watch Santa fly in from the North Pole. The city’s annual Main Street Holiday Parade will kick off at 10 a.m. at Madison and Main streets, and Santa will meet with area children afterward.

After the parade, the city’s firehouse at 315 N. Church St. will host most of the events. The Tecumseh Arrow Marching Band will sell poinsettias, refreshments will be served and there will be a costume contest, with winners receiving gift cards. To be included in the contest, children will need to dress as their favorite storybook character and walk in the parade.

New Carlisle businesses will also be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., offering refreshments and special items for shoppers who visit downtown.

South Charleston will also host its 26th Annual Christmas at the Opera House on Saturday and Sunday at 35 S. Chillicothe St. An annual holiday concert is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Both concerts will include more than 50 local performers and offer free admission. Village offices will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas.

In Enon, residents will gather at the Enon Community Historical Society at 6:45 p.m. for the village’s annual tree-lighting ceremony. The historical society, at 45 Indian Drive, will also host a visit from Santa, and a choir performance, along with other entertainment.
