Holiday Walk Details:
This Sunday, December 4, will be our annual Holiday Walk!!! I hope you've seen the brochures and signs and are ready to celebrate the holidays Fort Thomas style!
The Walk will begin at 5:30 with the opening ceremony and Santa's arrival at the Tree in Inverness (corner of Memorial Parkway and N. Fort Thomas Avenue). Special holiday music will be led by Brent Reed. After the lighting of the tree, please shop throughout the businesses open in the Inverness District.
Often people are so intent on heading for the closing that they forget that we have some great shops in Inverness. State Farm with Tracy Davis, the 915, Cake Towne, Love Letters, Balloons Across the River, Precision Dental Lab, Fort Thomas Carryout, Tan-a-Rific, and Your Town Realtors will welcome you!
You can either walk, ride the shuttle (thanks to Executive!), or take the horse and wagon up the hill to the Towne Center where Santa will be taking photos at the Fort Thomas Fire Department. Lots of cute pets will be in the lobby of the City Building. They would LOVE your home for Christmas! All the business throughout the Towne Center will be open and anxiously awaiting your visit. The Highland Dance teams will be performing throughout the district.
The evening will end at 8:00 at the Presbyterian Church with their live nativity. No closing ceremony this year. No need to get stamps. No gift drawings. We are hoping you will simply enjoy the simplicity and beauty of the holiday. Our businesses appreciate you and want to share their "homes" with you. Shuttles will be available to take you back to your cars at the end of the evening.
