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