The annual holiday lighting of the Courthouse is the official start of the Christmas season in Licking County. This year will mark the 64th consecutive lighting, continuing a tradition that began in 1949. Generations of local families return every season for the annual lighting ceremony and to enjoy the warm glow of the holiday decorated Courthouse.
Sponsored by the Licking County Courthouse Lighting Committee. They oversee the installation, wiring and decorating of the Courthouse, Gazebo and the surrounding Courthouse Park. The Committee is continuing their efforts in the expensive conversion of the decorations and stringers from incandescent to more energy efficient longer lasting LED lights. Community contributions will pay for the LED upgrading of the bulbs, replacement of worn equipment, and the removal of the decorations in January.
The Lighting Committee will organize the traditional arrival of Santa and a musical program on the Friday evening after Thanksgiving.
