Implementing Growth in Ironton, Ohio

Our Mission: To encourage and stimulate commercial growth in Downtown Ironton and the entire City of Ironton.

Christmas at the Ironton City Center

Christmas at the ironton City CenterFirst of all, we would like to thank everyone for a very successful Small Business Saturday. The small business owners in Ironton were truly grateful for every person who walked through their doors.

Also, the Santa Express was a hit. The trolley stayed full and the kids had a great time.

Lots of children and their parents expressed their love of s’mores at the Farmer’s Market. We saw many creative cookie designs as children decorated cookies with Mrs. Claus at the Transit Center. The Transit Cafe also supplied free hot chocolate for kids under 12. Santa Claus stirred up a lot of smiles and laughter at the City Center as he posed for photos with the children. At the Holiday Inn, visitors got a tour of the hotel along with story time and hot chocolate.

It was a very fun day and we are looking forward to bringing even more fun your way next year.

As for now, there is more in store for Christmas in Ironton…

For three Saturdays this month, Ironton aLive presents to you “Christmas at the City Center.” Come check out these wonderful choirs that will be saturating our City Hall with songs of Christmas cheer. Click the image above to enlarge it.

While you’re there, simply sit back, listen, and enjoy some free cookies and hot chocolate.

We want to thank each of these choirs for lending their time and talents this Christmas Season.

Business After Hours Was a Success!

Catering at Business After Hours

On October 23, Ironton business owners attended Business After Hours at the Ro-Na, which was also the Ironton aLive annual event where our organization highlighted its accomplishments for the past year.

A lot has been achieved in the past year. The Ironton Farmer’s Market’s second year was a great success, the Great I-Town Scavenger Hunt brought a lot of positive feedback from business owners and the community, and the citizens of Ironton have noticed a lot of positive change. Much of this was talked about at Business After Hours as business owners observed the displays of each sub-committee’s accomplishments.

There was also great food, excellent door prizes, and everyone had a great time.


Here are some photos of the event:
