The Little Miami River Chamber Alliance is pleased to share that the City of Loveland will once again be transformed into a beautiful wonderland for the Christmas holiday.

On December 16 visitors can enjoy horse carriage rides, a live nativity, farm animals from Branch Hill Estates to interact with, a children’s train ride, and a trolley ride around town.

At the heart of the event you will find the main stage with live entertainment all evening, vendors row for local businesses, Christmas shopping at the Holiday Market, and food trucks to include Moma Bears Mac, Funnel Vision, and The Chef Model.

Entertainment, vendors & shopping can be found in the center of town next to the live nativity scene near Fleet Feet. North Pole magic can be found at BF Realty & Bond Furniture and Design where kids can do crafts with Mrs. Claus and visit Santa (map coming soon)! Bring your pup along for the best dressed pet costume contest hosted by Pet Wants and all entries receive a gift card! Looking to adopt a pet this Christmas? League for Animal Welfare will be on site with many of their cats & dogs for adoption!

CeeCee Collins, President of the chamber shared that “there will be so many fun activities such as train rides, caroling and Santa’s Wonderland, just to name a few! This is such a great event where the businesses want to give back to everyone that has patronized and visited in downtown. They truly appreciate everyone supporting local businesses and hope they will return to enjoy all of the Loveland area. There will be many samplings and give-a-ways for all ages to enjoy!
