2020 UPDATE – Watch for cancelations or changes to events based on COVID-19 precautions.  If counties determine gatherings to be unsafe they may cancel events.  I will try to update events and information as it is released but please confirm events before heading out as I cannot guarantee all updates will be posted for each event.

December 5th, 2020  Events all day long!
Come celebrate an Old-Fashioned Christmas with the City of Wilmore. After the hot chocolate and tree lighting, residents are invited to tour downtown businesses for open houses, carriage rides, and many different musical experiences!

The City of Richmond and Parks and Recreation have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Christmas Parade. We made changes early on to attempt to make it safer for all involved, but the increase in COVID-19 rates and logistical concerns have forced us to make the decision to cancel the Parade for safety of our staff and our desire to only present the best possible events to our residents. We are still planning on having our Santa Express program and we will be conducting that as a “mini-parade” where Santa will be accompanied by local Fire and Police through local City of Richmond neighborhoods on December 14th and 15; more info to come. We apologize for any inconvenience this decision has caused and hope to bring back the Parade for 2021!
