Details on Richmond 2012 Christmas Parade

Santa Claus will ride in on the last unit of parades that begin 7 p.m. Friday in Richmond and 6 p.m. Saturday in Berea.

The Richmond Parade, sponsored by the city's tourism department, will start at the Eastern Kentucky University campus, go up Lancaster Avenue, turn right on Main Street and conclude at Collins Street.

Prior to the parade, beginning at 6 p.m., the First United Methodist Church, at the intersection of Lancaster and Main, will present "Concert at the Columns" from the church's front steps.

Both the Richmond and Berea parades have associated craft shows at which items handmade by Santa's helpers will be sold.

Pottery Palooza, a holiday ceramics sale sponsored by Richmond Tourism will take place at Irvinton in Irvine-McDowell Park on Lancaster Avenue from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The Holiday Happening Craft Show, sponsored by the Richmond Parks and Recreation Department, will take place in City Hall on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Items include wreaths, ornaments, toys, fudge, and much more, said Erin Moore, parks and recreation assistant director.

"Santa will be at City Hall from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., so, bring a camera for a great photo opportunity," she said.

Berea's 26th annual Twilight Christmas Parade, sponsored by the Berea Chamber of Commerce, comes up Chestnut Street and then turns right onto Main Street, headed back to the Berea Community School.

The chamber's Christmas Bazaar will be set up at two locations, on the College Square and at Chestnut Street Park, beginning at 1 p.m. and running until the parade ends, about 7:30 p.m.
