Around Town

Plantation Home  is proud to be part of the local community. We participate in a number of local events around Lakewood. Please See the List Below.

Santa Claus is indeed coming to town, and it’s sooner than you think. Breakfast with Santa returns to Downtown Lakewood on Small Business Saturday (November 30) from 9 a.m. to 12 noon when Jolly Saint Nick himself visits O’Neill Healthcare Lakewood (Assisted Living Building – 1381 Bunts Road).

Presented by the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance, a merchant association of LakewoodAlive, this popular holiday tradition consists of “Selfies with Santa” photo opportunities (bring your own camera), a seated breakfast (pancakes, eggs and sausage) and a children’s activity room featuring opportunities to write letters to the North Pole.

This fun-filled, family-friendly event is open to all ages and is anticipated to sell out quickly. Tickets for both seatings (9 and 10:30 a.m.) of Breakfast with Santa are on sale now. General admission tickets are $12; tickets for children aged 3 to 8 are $7; and tickets for children aged two and under are free. Please note that highchairs and booster seats will not be available.

UPDATE: The 11th Annual Lakewood Chocolate Walk is sold out.

Get ready to rejoice, chocolate lovers!  A delectably memorable evening awaits when the 11th Annual Lakewood Chocolate Walk takes place on Thursday, October 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. in Downtown Lakewood.

The Chocolate Walk – hosted by the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance and LakewoodAlive – represents a popular autumn tradition with a devout following of chocolate enthusiasts from all over Northeast Ohio and beyond.  Participants visit 25 shops and eateries in Downtown Lakewood that are Sweet Stops on the Chocolate Walk.
