Magic Key Turns On Holiday Lights in Lexington Kentucky

 The holiday freight train is rolling into Lexington KY right in the nick of time! 

Last night the festivities were changed up from past celebrations for the Christmas Parade and the Celebration of Lights. They were combined and at night!  What a great idea!

Usually, the parade is in the morning at 10AM and the lighting of the tree on another day. The crowd that gathered last night got many new surprises and they stayed warm with hot chocolate and coffee supplied by many downtown restaurants.  

At the center of the festivities, people crowed around fabulously decorated Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza to see Santa, Mayor Jim Newberry and his family turn a "magic key" that lit up all of the city's new holiday decor. This even included fireworks shot off the district courthouse! WoW! Click this for The Lexington Herald Leader story.

With 2 miles of garland and 2 miles of new Christmas lights Lexington city workers worked like Santa's Elves in getting it all completed in time for the parade and magic key ceremony.

I can't help but feel that everyone here in Central Kentucky is excited this year about the holidays. There is so much to be thankful for.  Richmond, KY celebrated a few nights ago with their annual Christmas Parade with Santa and it was a blast!

Lizette--Sounds like a wonderful, magically holiday event in Lexington KY!

I really surprised this year that I am really into Christmas! I even decorated my house inside and out a few few weeks before Thanksgiving just so I could enjoy it longer.

I have a couple of thing put tree though...our house is way too small. Lots of Christmas spirit and I see you do too!

Lizette, I'm telling you I feel like scrooge this year.  It snowed here today (our first) so I'm just starting to get in the holiday spirit :)  The parade sounds wonderful (so did the hot chocolate!

I can understand that you don't have the room to display Christmas decorations. (I remember your house pics) Besides that ....where would you store them in the off season?


That's funny! I can hardly picture you as a scrooge! Maybe you will be more in the mood after you trudge through the snow a bit! Get out those uggs!
