Winter Fun

Winter Fun

There’s nothing quite like holiday time in Bryan, Ohio. Colorful lights and winter figures adorn the courthouse square, setting the scene for the season. Boutiques and gift shops feature unique offerings, while local eateries provide a cozy place to gather and celebrate with loved ones.

If you’re looking for a way to stay active in winter, we have that too. Our extensive park system is just as beautiful in the winter months, providing walking trails and ample locations to soak in nature on cross-country skis or snow shoes.

Some of our wintertime highlights include:

  • Santa arrival parade, held downtown the Friday after Thanksgiving
  • Christkindl Market of Bryan, held throughout the holiday season featuring visits with Santa, horse-drawn wagon rides, hot chocolate and more
  • Ice skating at MacDonald-Ruff Ice Rink
  • Cross-country ski rentals available through MacDonald-Ruff Ice Rink
