Weekend Radar: Parade, Illumination, Soul Santa, Yuletide Monsters

We’re leaning heavily into the Christmas spirit this weekend with our picks.

Published

on

On the Radar

Christmas Parade – I’d end up on the naughty list if I didn’t include this one. Not much else to say beyond the title. It’s a big parade with all the parade things, bands, floats, large floating things, lots of people you don’t know waving at you from cars, stormtroopers, and intensely smiling people. The weather looks perfect.

  • Downtown Richmond | Route starts Science Museum of Virginia to the Richmond Coliseum on Broad | Dec 4, Parade Start 10 AM | Free | Website

Grand Illumination – They turn on the city’s holiday lights. You can enjoy the party downtown for the live show and spend the evening with news anchors Deanna Allbrittin and Eric Phillips, meteorologists Matt DiNardo and John Bernier and sports anchor Natalie Kalibat. DJ Lonnie B will be on hand to keep the music going and Mayor Levar Stoney will flip the switch and turn on the city’s holiday lights.

  • Kanawha Plaza | 8th and Canal Streets | Dec 3rd, Starts at 5 PM lights on 6 PM | Free | FB Event

Under the Radar

Soul Santa – Soul Santa is coming to town, specifically the Black History Museum and Cultural Center.  “As we continue to do our best to keep everyone safe, Soul Santa will visit virtually again this year. Our special guest is NBC12’s Jasmine Turner. Jasmine will interview Soul Santa on the Soul Santa Network (SSN) and he will be joined by some of his special friends for fun activities. Registration is now open so sign up and tune in! Every child who registers will receive a Christmas card in the mail from the big man himself!”

  • Virtual | Dec 4th & Dec 11th, 10 AM & 11 AM | Free | Register Here

Krampusnacht “Yuletide Monsters” – A a jam-packed evening full of Krampus themed art from local artists, burlesque performances, live music, DJs, libation specials, a toy drive, and more.
