The Jack Frost Festival welcomes the holiday season with fun activities for the entire family. From 6-7 p.m. local businesses, organizations, churches and schools create floats and march from the municipal parking lot behind City Hall 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, free cocoa and cookies, a skating rink, ice sculptures and rides on a miniature Ferris wheel and a carousel.
