The Barberton Area Jaycees will once again be organizing the Barberton Winter Wonderland Festival, formally known as the Downtown Barberton Christmas Walk. This year's celebration will be held Saturday, November 25, 2017. Last year was a truly magical event, and this year we are hoping to have the same amazing weather! This family friendly and fun evening will include the annual City of Barberton Lake Anna Park Christmas Light display, photos with Santa, Barberton Area Jaycees building light show set to music, costumed characters, live entertainment, and unique shopping and dining experiences provided by down town businesses.
At this time, we are looking to the community to sponsor the festival and its several events. The Winter Wonderland Festival is volunteer-run, and funded entirely by donations and event fees. Last year's marvelous event's production costs were $8,849. In addition to the Jaycees' own contributions, we have $740 remaining from last year's event, raised by horse drawn wagon rides admissions, photo fees and raffle basket ticket sales. Donations from the community will help to make this year's event just as wondrous as 2016 - if not better!
We are hoping that your company or organization is interested in getting involved. As a sponsor, your name will appear in the Barberton Herald newspaper, on the Jaycees' website and social media, as well as event fliers and on a sing displayed during the event. A generous donation of $500 or more will also allow the above advertisements to contain your company's logo.
Any monetary donation would be greatly appreciated. As funds are received, our committee will discuss the possibility of adding activities such as train rides around Lake Anna, children's crafts, an animal display, ice carvings, a shuttle service, and costumed carolers.
Please consider helping us kick off the holiday season. Below you will find the application and a link to making a donation through our online store. Please remember to check out through our store after completing the application for your sponsorship to be accepted. Applications and payments submitted by October 31, 2017 will be guaranteed inclusion in the appropriate advertisements.
Fee free to contact me, Lauren Holm, at BarbertonChristmas@gmail.com if you have any questions, suggestions to make this year's Barberton Winter Wonderland Festival a success. Visit us on Facebook, or keep checking this website, for the latest updates!
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
