Join us for the Annual Kris Kringle Procession through the streets of Downtown Frederick! The event begins at the corner of South Carroll and West Patrick Streets in Frederick at 6:30pm and ends in Baker Park with the lighting of the City Tree.
The procession mirrors the small town charm that makes Frederick so special during the holidays. Local children dressed as reindeer, snowflakes, angels, elves, and gifts will accompany costumed characters, some modern, some traditional, through Frederick’s downtown streets.
Several of the procession’s characters reflect Frederick’s German heritage, including Pelsnickle and Weinacht Man, who help Kris Kringle judge whether children have been bad or good. Krist Kindle is an angel-like messenger who leaves gifts for good children in small baskets. The procession also includes several modern characters, such as Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
After the procession all are invited to head to Baker Park Bandshell for a closing ceremony and join the City of Frederick Mayor and procession characters in the signing of holiday tunes and the lighting the Baker Park tree.
