The Jack Frost Festival welcomes the holiday season with fun activities for the entire family. The community organizations are invited to march in the Light Up Berea parade through downtown Berea. The Christmas Tree on the Triangle is lighted by a special firework launched from atop downtown businesses and a spectacular fireworks display follows. Berea is one of only a very few communities in northeast Ohio to offer a parade and fireworks during the holiday season. After the parade, children can visit with Santa. There is also musical entertainment, cocoa and cookies, a skating rink, ice sculptures and fun costume characters.
