Tenth Annual Christmas Under the Clock is Saturday, December 3 from 5-9pm!

Christmas Under the Clock is always the first Saturday of December and this year the 10th annual celebration (can you believe it has been 10 years!?) falls on December 3 from 5-9 pm.

The tree lighting will take place at 5 pm at the center of town under the clock at the intersection of Main and Chillicothe Streets. There will carolers, the Jonathan Alder band, and an appearance by Santa at the tree lighting. The Tree Lighting Ambassadors, chosen from the coloring contest, will be the lucky ones who get to hit the switch and turn on the tree lights.

Additionally, gift baskets, holiday decorations, and other goodies will be auctioned off at 5:30 pm at the Plain City Auction House in the “Gift Baskets and More Auction.” Proceeds from this auction will go to the Plain City Food Pantry.

Santa will be available at 5:30 pm, also, at Yoder’s True Value Hardware Store. You can take a tractor or horse drawn wagon ride down to the hardware store to visit Santa.

Other businesses in town will feature open houses with food, special holiday shopping discounts, and prizes. The Plain City Public Library will hold a book sale and several church groups and organizations will be passing out food and drinks in Lovejoy Plaza.

Additionally, a live ice sculpting performance, Rock on Ice, by Plain City’s Greg Butauski will take place in Bicentennial Park (the Flatiron).

The prize drawing for the $500 VISA Gift Card will take place at 9 pm at The Plain City Historical Society, 111 West Main Street. Remember, the more open houses you visit, the more chances you have to win! Additionally, you can receive extra chances to win the gift card by bringing non-perishable items to the Plain City Food Pantry (156 W. Main Street). For each item you bring, you will receive an extra entry in the drawing.

Plain City Druggist will be taking part in the Christmas Under the Clock festivities with an open house that will begin at 5:30 pm after the tree lighting. Stop by for food, bottled pop from our old fashioned Coke cooler, and discounts on everything in the store (except prescription medications). We have a ton of great gift items out front this year thanks to Lamphao Johnson, shopper extraordinaire, who has stepped up and taken over with the gift merchandise.

Lamphao has really gotten into the holiday spirit and has decorated everything that is not moving–so watch out–if you stop to visit too long in the pharmacy, she might just tie you up in lights and bows!

Christmas Under the Clock is sponsored by the Uptown Plain City Organization (UPCO), the Plain City Business Association, and the Village of Plain City. You can find out more about Christmas Under the Clock by visiting the UPCO web site HERE.
