TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - 13abc’s annual Hope for the Holidays Celebration Weekend continued Saturday night in Perrysburg at Levis Commons after kicking off Friday from Promenade Park.

Saturday’s event began at 11:30 a.m. and ran through 9:00 p.m. It featured live musical performances, a Santa’s Parade, fire truck train rides, an opportunity to take photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus and a tree lighting celebration.

People also joined us in downtown Toledo at Promenade Park at the kick-off event for the Celebration Weekend Friday. Six frontline heroes helped us illuminated the holiday tree. The family-friendly event also featured appearances by Santa Claus and local musicians, with vendors, food trucks and a photo booth.

Don’t forget our Toy Drive is underway and runs through December 6. You can drop off an unused, unwrapped toy to many area locations available here. The 13abc drive-thru bash is Dec. 2. Find the details here.
