Holiday Homecoming at The Works

Friday, November 26 - 9:00 AM

In the late 1800s, families gathered around the frozen Ohio and Erie Canal to play games, share stories, and enjoy winter refreshments as a community. The Works’ Holiday Homecoming event celebrates the history and heritage behind these bygone traditions. Visit The Works the day after Thanksgiving to learn about this time period and enjoy family activities, take-home crafts, ornament-making, refreshments & more! Shop our 35% off Glass Sale on Nov 26 & 27.
