Square lights up the season

Downtown transforms into Bedford Falls for a 'Wonderful' time

Horse-drawn carriage rides, ice sculptors and Santa Claus arriving on a train are some of the events that await people who visit downtown Bedford from noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 10.
It is part of "Christmas in Bedford Falls," a takeoff on the movie, "It's a Wonderful Life" starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. The film took place in the fictitious town of Bedford Falls.
"It is part of the hometown atmosphere of Bedford," Mayor Dan Pocek said. "It is one of the unique qualities that this city has over others."
Santa Claus will arrive at noon on a decorated train caboose before heading to Walgreens, 647 Broadway Ave., to greet children. Free photos with Santa will be taken from 1-4 p.m.
Some stores will offer free hot chocolate, candy, cookies, popcorn and gift certificates.
"We hope to bring more people back into Bedford," said Mike Guyer, president of the Bedford Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the event.
Ice sculptors from Olmsted Ice Co. will carve Frosty the Snowman out of 20 blocks of ice, each weighing 150 pounds, at the city's municipal parking lot next to Romito's Smoke Shop, 703 Broadway Ave.
