The lights are up, the vendor chalets are decorated, and volunteers are as busy as elves preparing Fort Steuben Park and the Visitor Center for the 2017 Nutcracker Village and Advent Market to open this week in downtown Steubenville.
“We are just awaiting the arrival of the 150 stars of the show: the Nutcrackers,” exclaimed Jerry Barilla, president of Historic Fort Steuben and one of the founders of the event. “Nelson’s of Steubenville, the creators and fabricators of the nutcrackers, have produced 40 new characters who will join their 100 siblings as they line the walks in Fort Steuben Park on Tuesday, November 21.”
