Drinks, Kringle, Candlelight, and Reindeers

Some Frederick fun for you:

  • Three Saturdays in December: Drink – Join in the holiday cheer with Three Saturdays in December – Eat, Drink & Be Merry! On December 10, collect downtown’s favorite holiday drinks recipes and on December 17th, collect merry quotes and contribute your own to a community holiday card that will be displayed prominently downtown.
  • Museums by Candlelight – This is a self-guided event. Visit many locations, or just a few, in any order. Enjoy period demonstrations, living history vignettes, hands-on crafts, refreshments, tours, music, holiday decorations and historic settings by candlelight as night falls. Saturday, December 10, 2011, programs start at 12 noon.
  • Kris Kringle Procession – The event begins at the corner of Carroll and Patrick Streets in Frederick and ends with the lighting of the City Tree in Baker Park. The procession mirrors the small town charm that makes Frederick so special during the holidays. Local children dressed as reindeer, snowflakes, angels, elves, and gifts will accompany costumed characters, some modern, some traditional, through Frederick’s downtown streets.
  • Reindeer Monologues – Santa’s reindeer are dishing out the real dirt on ol’ St. Nick. Want to know the truth about him and the elves? About Rudolph’s little secret? About Vixen’s story that was leaked to the press? The reindeer finally speak, and they’re not holding back!

  1. Dinner reservations on Market St at 6 pm, play at 8 pm at the MET. I’m thinking parking is going to be a nightmare tonight with the parade happening as well. Guess we better get ourselves downtown by 4 pm and just hang out.


  2. We loved the parade! First time we’d seen it. Took an out of town guest and she loved every minute of it. She keeps telling me “You have such a great town!” I told her that if I loved this town anymore I think my heart would burst. And trust me, I’ve lived in 11 states, some more than once, 2 other countries, and I’ve been to 47 of the 50 states, more than 30 countries and 5 continents. I’ve been in enough places to know a truly wonderful town.
