Tis the Season!

If you ask a Knoxvillian, it’s not really Christmas until Santa strolls down Gay Street.

The First Friday of December is the WIVK Christmas Parade! This annual parade heads right down Gay St. in an array of lights and colors and Christmas music. (This year’s Grand Marshals are local healthcare heroes!) We suggest coupling the evening with a hot chocolate a la Cruze Farm or a holiday cocktail from Tern Club.

Downtown can get pretty crowded for the parade so come early for easy parking and good seats!
