Christmas in Elkton and Parade Saturday December 11

Visit historic Elkton, Kentucky this year for a down home Christmas celebration. On Saturday, December 11, 2021, the city of Elkton and our local businesses invite you to Elkton, Kentucky to help us celebrate “Christmas in Elkton.”

Many local businesses will have open house, special sales, refreshments, and other activities throughout the day. So, come to the quiet little town of Elkton and walk around Historic Public Square and visit our unique gift shops, boutiques and local eateries.

Following your day of shopping, the Elkton Christmas parade will start at 6:00 PM, leaving Todd County Central High School on South Main Street. The parade will then head north towards Public Square, exiting the Square on West Main Street and ending at the Milliken Memorial Community House. The parade features lighted floats and entries from local businesses, schools and churches. Please note traffic will be blocked to Public Square starting around 5:30 PM until all festivities are over.

The Grand Marshall of the parade this year will be all Todd County sports teams to celebrate their recent accomplishments.

Immediately following the parade at about 7:30 PM, Santa Claus will visit with everyone at the Milliken Memorial Community House located at 208 West Main Street. There will be free digital pictures with Santa Claus, and free take home refreshments sponsored by the city and goodie bags sponsored by BR Knuckles Insurance.
