Bring the family to celebrate An Old Towne Christmas on December 21st in historic Old Towne Petersburg. It all starts with a 5K Jingle Bell Run through the neighborhood (registration required) at Noon. At 2pm there will be a holiday choir concert on the steps of the Exchange Building (15 W. Bank St.). At 3pm there will be a very kid-focused 18-unit Christmas Parade beginning on lower Market St, to W. Bank St., to N. Sycamore Street. At 4pm the Taste of Christmas Past Festival begins with booths, kids games for 25 cents each, gifts, food, carriage rides. Then at 7pm in the Petersburg Area Art League Art Park, the movie “Elf”, starring Will Ferrell, will be shown on an outdoor screen, so wear your warm clothing and bring chairs/blankets.
