Shawnee... Walkin in a Winter Wonderland

THIS Saturday - Dec.4th

Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland
3rd Annual Luminary Walk

Shawnee Prairie Preserve

This Holiday Season, join Darke County Parks for an evening stroll through our Winter Wonderland!  On Saturday, December 4th from 6-9pm, there will be over 300 beautiful luminaries lighting your way along the wooded trails of Shawnee Prairie Preserve, allowing for a peaceful winter’s night in nature.  As you hike along the illuminated trail towards the Log House, you can enjoy the crisp air and bright stars of an early December eve.

At the Log House, our Pioneer Hosts will have the fire roaring, holiday snacks and warm drinks to enjoy.  Enjoy pioneer music of Christmas’ Past as you sit back and relax in the comforts of the 18th century.  Several holiday crafts will be available for the children (or young-at-heart!) to pass the time and take home.  The upstairs of the Log House will once again be open for the children’s crafts.

Once you are done in the Log House, head up to the Nature Center to visit the Gift Shop (SALE), get your photo with Mrs. Claus, make an ornament to take home and even get a few gifts wrapped by the Friends of the Parks!  Start a new family tradition with Darke County Parks this year.  Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland is the perfect event to bring the family and celebrate the season!  Dress for the weather.
