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 .
