Christmas floats will light up downtown Richmond Thursday evening.  Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross speak with City Administrator Ike Holland:

Ron Brohammer

The first Lighted Christmas Parade in Chillicothe took place last year.  “I think we only had two or three floats in it.  I think the High School Band, they had lights on themselves and their instruments,” said Brohammer, “It was just really a good time, and a lot of fun.  I think each year it’ll probably gain a little popularity and as we get more information out and more notoriety I think it’ll become a larger and larger event.”

The festivities kick off with the lighting of the Mayor’s Christmas tree at 5:55, then the parade will get underway at 6:00.
