Main Street Wooster, United Titanium, Wayne Savings Community Bank, the Daily Record, Cutler Real Estate, the Wooster Area Chamber of Commerce and the downtown Wooster merchants welcome children of all ages to Window Wonderland in downtown Wooster on Friday, Nov. 17 from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
 
The highlights of the evening’s program include the lighting of the children’s tree on public square simultaneously with the lighting of the community tree at the Wooster Cemetery. Santa also will be present.
 
Special to this year, Ohio Magazine will present Mayor Robert Breneman and the City of Wooster with the Best Hometown award. This ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m.
 
This year’s children’s tree will be brought to the square with the assistance of Public Properties, City of Wooster and Davey Tree. The tree has been donated by Barb Jeffers and Twinsberry Tree Farm and will be decorated by CenturyLink. Paper chains for the tree are provided by Ida Sue School.
 
The children’s tree will be lighted by Michael and Stephanie Reardon of United Titanium and the community tree by Pete Bogner.
 
Santa will make his descent from the rooftop of the Briggs Building at public square with assistance from the Wooster Fire Department, following a musical program at 7 p.m., which will feature the Christmas Brass, SignSations and the Wayne County Choral Union. The College of Wooster's cheerleaders will serve as elves and will assist Santa.
 
In addition there will be free horse-drawn wagon rides, courtesy of Wayne Savings and Spring Mist Farms of Brunswick Hills, and two live reindeer, which are sponsored by Cutler Real Estate.
 
Children can have their pictures taken with Santa at the gazebo or with Mrs. Claus at Huntington Bank.
 
Caricature artist Scott Hall will be at White Jewelers and throughout downtown. Visitors can get a cup of hot chocolate, coffee, hot apple cider and Lerch’s Donuts at Wayne Savings.
 
There will be ornament-making, plenty of music and open houses at most of the stores.
 
Be sure to look at the windows that have been decorated by downtown merchants. The Daily Record, MCTV, WQKT and the Wooster Weekly News have donated advertising prize packages for the window contest.
 
Don't forget to drop off a letter to Santa at Everything Rubbermaid and look for the Buehler’s Pineapples walking throughout the downtown.
