TOLEDO, Ohio — The Hensville Lights are returning bigger and brighter! The annual Toledo tradition lights up St. Clair Street, between Monroe and Washington streets, and is free and open to the public.
On Saturday, WTOL's Ariyl Onstott and Tyler Paley helped kick off the lighting of the 10,000 light 45-foot tree and the 200,000 glimmering lights along St. Clair St.
After dinner, go outside along St. Clair to see the 200,000 glimmering lights and the lighting of the 45-foot tree. The tree lights are synced to a special dancing light show that incorporates lighted designs on the Fleetwood building.
Santa Claus also joined in on the festivities along with family entertainment from the Toledo School for the Arts, Nye Dance Productions and a joint show by Ottawa Hills, Waite and Perrysburg High School American Sign Language.
Businesses along St. Clair Street participating in Hensville Lights include: Maloney, McHugh & Kolodgy Ltd., Holy Toledo! Tavern, Fleetwood's Tap Room, Neighborhood Health Association, Thomas Porter Architects, 20 North Gallery, and Fricker's.
While the kickoff is just one night, you can enjoy all the Hensville Lights through Jan. 5 and other fun activities to ring in the New Year.
