Cedar Point Press Release
SANDUSKY, Ohio (Nov. 7, 2023) – Back for its second year, the Season of Joy envelops Cedar Point’s Sawmill Creek Resort on select days, Nov. 17 – Dec. 31. Featuring thousands of dazzling lights inside and out, custom craft cocktails, live entertainment and the resort’s cozy 200-acre woodland setting, the Season of Joy is the ideal getaway for adults and families.
New this year, the magic of an old-fashioned Christmas TV special comes to life in “Fireside Family Christmas,” a look at how one family celebrates Christmas Eve through songs, fun and surprises. Additional favorites like “The Mistletones” and “Sawmill Carolers” are set to provide a merry and bright Christmas soundtrack in all their pitch-perfect harmonies.
