Small town Ohio is a magical place to be when the holiday season rolls around.

This year, the riverfront town of Portsmouth, Ohio was deemed the Hallmark Channel’s 2019 Hometown Christmas Town. The sleepy little town has been hard at work transforming its town square into a winter wonderland for the season, thanks to some spirited citizens and a local non-profit. From holiday shopping and pictures with Santa to ice skating and snow tubing, this humble little town is the place to be this Christmas season. Friends of Portsmouth Winterfest at Market Square is downright magical—so magical it could be a Hallmark Christmas movie set.
