Winter Story and Art Walk

Where do snowmen go at night when the rest of us are sound asleep? The answer is in the book Snowmen At Night by Caralyn Buehner.

Pages of the book will be displayed in the windows of participating downtown Columbus businesses from Friday, November 27 through the holiday season. Families can read the whole story together beginning at the Farmers & Merchants Bank and following the pages in order through downtown. The story ends at the library where kids can also take home a snowman craft.

Participating businesses, in story walk order, include Farmers & Merchants Bank, Edward Jones, Sharrow’s Downtown, Old Garage Barbershop, Richards Insurance, Comic Book Store, Cardinal Embroidery, Central Beauty Shop, Berg Kitchen Design, China King, The Workshop, Carousel Antiques and the Columbus Public Library. There is also an online map that you can use to navigate through the story walk.
