A Neighborhood Celebration for the Season
In the spirit of the season, a traditional neighborhood celebration is here to light up your holidays. The communities of Pleasant Ridge and Kennedy Heights will be hosting the ninth annual WinterFest on Friday, December 6 from 6 to 9 p.m.
WinterFest is packed with free and festive activities for the entire family at two locations. Come for part or all of the celebration. All are welcome!
The festival kicks off with a tree lighting ceremony at the Pleasant Ridge Community Center, 5915 Ridge Ave, at 6 p.m. Then come inside to the gym for games, crafts and entertainment from 6 to 8pm. Children will even have the opportunity to visit with jolly-old Santa Claus!
From 7 to 9pm, there will be more celebrating at the Kennedy Heights Arts Center, 6546 Montgomery Road. Visitors can view our winter art exhibition in the gallery, listen to holiday music by local choirs, and enjoy tasty desserts, wine and hot chocolate. Everyone is invited to gather ‘round the piano for carol singing with charismatic musician Todd Hepburn. You can even do some holiday shopping. The Kennedy gift shop features jewelry, pottery, photography, paintings, glass, and fiber works from local artists – perfect for gift-giving.
While at the Arts Center, children can make handmade ornaments in the art studio. There will also be a roving magician, brightening WinterFest’s family-oriented spirit.
WinterFest would not take place every year without the generous support of our sponsors. A big thanks to the Cincinnati Recreation Commission (Pleasant Ridge Center), Kennedy Heights Arts Center and Kennedy Heights Community Council.
