Message from Mayor Kleem


Berea’s Jack Frost Festival of Lights is Saturday, Dec. 2.

This is our city’s family-friendly welcome to the winter holidays. The evening starts with the annual parade at 5:30 p.m. It steps off from the parking lot behind City Hall. Remember, you have to pre-register to take part in the parade.

The city Christmas tree will be lit by a firework launched from atop downtown businesses and a spectacular fireworks display will follow. There will be rides, a skating rink and a chance for children to meet Santa. Plus, free hot chocolate and cookies.

Christmas and New Year’s can be a hectic time – with shopping, parties, family get-togethers, traveling. The Jack Frost Festival offers a break from the stress and busyness of the season.

Thanks to all who support the Jack Frost Festival and Berea’s other year-round events, such as Harvest Festival, Grindstone Festival, summer music concerts and movies. Your continued sponsorships make such community events possible and we are extremely grateful.

To all Berea residents and businesses, my family and I wish you a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah and a Blessed New Year.
