Staff Pick: Candlelight Nights
Each Wednesday in December, hundreds of votive candles and lit evergreens brighten up Franklin Park Conservatory for what is perhaps the most romantic holiday event in town. A different local music group performs each week, and on Wednesday, Dec. 22, singers from Opera Columbus will present holiday favorites like "Joy to the World" and good old "Frosty the Snowman."
If you're not feeling the need for romance, bring a pair of 3D glasses that turn each of those lights into little snowflakes, reindeer or Stars of David. They make everything that's illuminated even more fun.
