Chardon WinterFest 2015 a Success
Hundreds of people flocked to the Chardon Square on January 17 for Chardon Tomorrow’s fifth annual WinterFest. The day began with free wagon rides drawn by Big Sky Clydesdales, ice sculpture demonstrations, a meet and greet with a dog sled team and a host of other fun activities. The grand finale was the torching of the fire and ice tower by Elegant Ice Creations. Thanks to University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center for making this event possible by serving as presenting sponsor again this year. To check out our full list of sponsors click here.

Shop Chardon, buy local and support the community
Remember to support your local merchants and Shop Chardon First during the holiday season and beyond. The math alone for buying close to home is compelling—for every $100 spent at a locally-owned business, $73 remains in the local economy, and $27 leaves. Compare that to the same $100 spent at a non-locally owned business, where $43 remains in the local economy and $57 leaves. Recent research from Civic Economics indicates that local eateries return nearly 79 percent of revenues to the community, compared to just over 30 percent for chain restaurants.
