Few things put me in the holiday spirit more than a fresh coat of white snow. The tingling feeling as the flakes melt on the tip of my nose, the deer tracks in an otherwise untarnished back yard, and the calm and freshness that seems to fall with each unique snowflake. It is with that as the weekend backdrop that Ft. Thomas gets to celebrate the holiday season with the annual holiday walk.
This year’s theme is “An Unexpected Christmas” and kicks off at 5:30 on Sunday December 8th with the arrival of Santa Claus at the Inverness area. Then the tree lighting will take place at 5:45 after which the shuttle vans will be running from Inverness to the center of town where the local businesses will open their doors for a holiday celebration. Shuttles will run until 8:00 pm when the event ends. Additionally, there will be free carriage rides ongoing during the event.
So, be sure to attend what will certainly be a great evening of support for local businesses, communion with friends and family, and a celebration of the impending holiday season. Sponsors are Marian Sizemore (State Farm), Executive Transportation. Balloons Across the River, Jewels on the Avenue, and Fort Thomas Renaissance.
