The Christmas Parade kicks off Hopewell’s holiday season at 4:00 pm, starting at Cavalier Square and proceeding down 15th Street to City Point Road, Main Street & Ashford Civic Plaza. Immediately following the parade will be the Grand Illumination of Hopewell in the Plaza, and then Downtown Winterfest kicks off with Food Trucks, Mini Train Rides, Craft Activities in the Library, & a Petting Zoo on Cawson Street. Of course, you must go and visit Santa and chat about your Christmas wishes! He will be on the Mezzanine Level of the Hopewell Public Library. Be sure to bring a camera so you can take pictures.
