A year ago, brand-new and zealous members of the Crescent Hill neighborhood, my wife and I invited friends to join us an early December afternoon so we could all partake in the festivities that were promised to be part of Olde Tyme Christmas on Frankfort Avenue.
Unfortunately, either as a product of our unfamiliarity with the neighborhood or our lack of understanding regarding the event, we never found/made it to the party. This year, I sure hope it is a different experience.
Olde Tyme Christmas is set to run from 9am-8pm on Saturday and will feature events and festivities at different locations throughout the Frankfort Avenue corridor.
Here is a rough outline of what to expect. For more info on any of these events, click HERE.
