Nutcrackers are “Steubenville Natives”

Have you heard about Steubenville’s newest residents?   Well, for at least a couple months each year at Christmastime,  Steubenville will be inhabited by the “Nutcrackers”.

These life sized (6′ tall) Nutcrackers will take up residence at Fort Steuben Park beginning in December, as well as appear in a number of store fronts and be featured in the 2015 Steubenville Christmas Parade.

And the best part is, these fellows are Steubenville ‘Natives’.  They are completely created and manufactured (born so to speak) here in Steubenville at the locally owned Nelson Fine Art & Gifts.   They each have a name and birth day too!

This year will mark the introduction and opening of “Steubenville’s Nutcracker Village” at Fort Steuben Park, 120 S. Third Street so be sure to come and welcome your new ‘neighbors’ and while you’re here, stop in the Visitor Center and visit Christmas Wonderland and the Christmas Gift Shop.

Check out the video below to see how it all happens…. you will be amazed!
