WELLSVILLE — Village residents mourned the loss of their old fashioned holiday festival last year due to the pandemic. However, in 2021, Christmas In The Village is back for its fourth year.

Sponsored by Mason Color Works, Wellsville Terminals co. and Numbers Brewery Company, the event is held from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11 in the Wellsville Alumni Center, according to event organizer John Morrow. Chockful of excitement, the event includes photo opportunities with Santa; a coloring contest with prizes; a vendor fair; and live music with David J. Morgan (noon), Bill Crawford (3 p.m.) and Dave Byers (4 p.m.)

Randy Schneider, co-owner of Renovatio’s in downtown East Liverpool, will serve as master of ceremonies for the day.

Vendor spots still are available for reservation by Wednesday, Dec. 8 at $25 each. Vendors will begin setting up their booths as early as 10 a.m., so they are ready to go when the event begins. Contact Morrow at christmasinwellsville@gmail.com for information. Between the vendor fees, a 50/50 and a basket drawing, event proceeds benefit a toy drive, Wellsville’s Car and Share program and the Wellsville High School Alumni Association.

Four tickets to Cleveland’s A Christmas Story House Museum will been given to the door prize winner, explained Morrow.

At 2 p.m. winners of the event’s Ugly Christmas Sweater contest will be announced with $25 Amazon gift cards as the prizes.

Later in the day, two winners (one boy, one girl) can score a Dairy Queen gift card in the Kids’ Coloring Contest.
