2013 Christmas in the Village promises a month of events events

Christmas is coming to the Village Nov. 30 with the annual parade and tree lighting, and it’s staying for a month.

The festivities will begin with the Christmas parade at 4 p.m. Nov. 30. It will feature Santa, the Gordon Pipers, Dickens carolers, Radio Disney, the Traders Point Hunt Club, reindeer and much more. Following the parade, at 5 p.m., there will be live music, and Radio Disney will provide games and goodie bags for children. At 6 p.m., the jolly old elf himself will help light the Village Christmas tree.

Throughout the month of December, Christmas shoppers can park in Lions Park on weekends and ride a free trolley downtown to visit their favorite restaurants, galleries and Village shops. There also will be free horse-drawn carriage rides every Saturday and musical performances to enjoy. And, of course, Santa will be available to hear everyone’s Christmas wish lists.

“Most of the shops and restaurants have some type of music or activity every weekend,” said Zionsville Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Julie Johns-Cole. There also will be street vendors, she said.

Children can have breakfast with Santa at one of six Village restaurants on Saturday, Dec. 7, by making reservations at www.zionsvilletrikappa.org. After breakfast, Mr. Claus will take up residence at the Santa house on the Serenity patio, 135 S. Main St., and will be there every Saturday and Sunday through Dec. 21.

The WinterGreen Market also will be Dec. 7, when Rail Trail Gardens, Watts Christmas Tree Farm, Palmer Kelley Designs, Akard True Value Hardware, and Zionsville Flower Company will offer evergreen wreaths, mistletoe, holly, garland and fresh blooming arrangements for sale.

Dickens Carolers will stroll the downtown streets on both Dec. 7 and Dec. 8, and other musical groups will perform at various locations on Dec. 7.

Both men and women can get some shopping assistance and have fun in the process during Christmas in the Village: Ladies Night will be Dec. 12, and Men’s Night will be Dec. 19. Ladies Night will begin with cocktails and modeling at 5 p.m. at The Sanctuary. Downtown shops and galleries will be open late for both events with special promotions.
