Thanksgiving is coming to a close so, what's next? Christmas is just under four weeks away and the City of Akron is putting on her winter best with the opening tomorrow of Winterblast at Lock 3 where you will find outdoor activities for the family. This Saturday the Welcome Santa Parade steps off at 10am with a new route because of the downtown Akron construction. Click here so you can see where you need to get a front row seat. The parade's topper will be Santa's appearance which usually comes just in time for the kick off of the OSU / Michigan game. Might I make a suggestion? If you're downtown anyway, stop in at the Barley House on Main at State and join TK O'Grady for some OSU-Flick-'Em. You can win prizes and cheer on the Buckeyes! Akron's Home of Rock & Roll wishes you the best of holidays. Take us along wherever you go.
