Christmas in Elkton and Parade 2015


Saturday, December 12, 2015

Christmas in Elkton and Parade will be held on Saturday, December 12, 2015 in Elkton, Kentucky.  The day starts off with local businesses having open house, Christmas sales and free refreshments throughout the day.  See the list below of participating businesses and other events going on during this day.

The Elkton Christmas Parade will start at 7 PM, leaving Todd Central High School parking lot at 806 South Main Street, then going North on Hwy 181 to Public Square, exit square on West Main Street.  Once the parade gets to the Milliken Community House on West Main Street, parade participants can go in any direction to return to the high school or home.  This is in an effort to alleviate heavy traffic at the high school when the parade is complete.

Traffic will also be closed to Public Square from 6 pm until about 9:30 pm to allow foot traffic to enjoy the parade and many other activities. Other activities on the Square will include free hot chocolate and refreshments in the Welcome Center sponsored by Lakeview Baptist Church,  a live nativity scene (Stokes Chapel Church), Dickens carolers (Elkton Baptist Church) starting at 6 PM. And, look for a special surprise!

Immediately following the parade on the Square, there will be antique car rides and Classic Car Cruise In

Immediately following the parade, enjoy Candy Land Christmas where Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit with children at the Milliken Memorial Community House starting at about 8:00 PM.  Also in the Community House:
