It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
By Naiesha Thobe, Teen Scribe

Greenville, Ohio was not the exception to the rule on Friday evening. Broadway was bustling with people as the festivities took place - and it was only the beginning.

The annual Holiday Open House – a prelude to the Annual Greenville Horse Parade Saturday night - took place all over downtown, each business welcoming visitors in to browse, buy, or just to check out the new stores making home there. Holiday sales and promises of free cookies drew people into many different stores.

Sounds of Christmas music floated through the air, giving a generally cheerful atmosphere to the generally hectic street. Decorations were also in high demand; at every window was a new look into a Winter Wonderland. Horse-drawn carriage rides were also hosted during the evening, allowing people to experience Broadway at its finest (and not through the window of an automobile!).

The first annual Chocolate Walk was also held Friday evening. The 150 tickets that had been sold out for weeks now ensured many people were interested in the event. With a goodie bag in tow, participants were instructed to stop at specially marked stores for their chocolate surprise.

As Christmas slowly rolls in, only a month and a half away, Greenville definitely started the festivities off right.
