Always held the Friday before Thanksgiving, Promenade is our official kickoff of the festive season in the East Village neighborhood. Start the holiday season in style, and get a head start on treat-making (and gift-giving!).
Here’s some of what will be happening at Promenade:
- Free horse-drawn trolley ride – gather outside of HoQ Restaurant on E 5th and Walnut from 5:30 – 8pm;
- Carolers strolling and singing throughout the neighborhood;
- Ice skating at Brenton Plaza, where there will be an ice sculpture carver, and they’ll light a great big Christmas tree.
- PLUS Santa Claus will be at Brenton Skate Plaza from 5-6:30!
At 6:30, Santa hits the road (in a race car!) and zooms down to LifeServe Blood Center (right across the street from AllSpice), where he’ll be talking with Promenade visitors until 8pm.
What’ll be cookin’ at AllSpice? For Promenade, we’ll be celebrating, all evening long, in AllSpice style.
We’re unveiling some cool new merchandise and themed boxed sets that you’re going to want to see. Need some fresh gift ideas? We’ll have plenty of suggestions in store.
And of course, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite drinks and treats – a perfect opportunity to gather ideas for festive cooking and entertaining.
We’ll share more details in the days ahead about what we’ll be doing at the shop. To find out more about the night’s activities throughout all of the East Village, follow the Promenade event page on Facebook.
