Liberty Hall, South Frankfort Neighborhood Association, WalkBike Frankfort, and the Folkbike ReCyclery invite everyone to the Historic Downtown Frankfort area for a day of patriotic celebration and an old-fashioned good time. In this collaborative effort, the SFNA and Walk/Bike Frankfort will begin the annual kid’s bike, trike, stroller parade from the parking lot at Second Street School on Saturday, July 4 at 1 p.m. We will carefully and safely guide the group to Liberty Hall to enjoy refreshments and a cool treat. At 2:15, Liberty Hall will begin registering individuals for their Patriotic Wheels contest and parade starting at 2:30. Participants will be judged, during Liberty Hall’s bike parade, on their patriotic decorations. The first prize winner will receive two tickets to Kentucky Kingdom from Froggy 104.9 and other participants will receive a prize from Liberty Hall.
Stick around Liberty Hall to listen to the 202nd Army Band, participate in one or both scavenger hunts, or jump through the sprinklers. For dinner, go a few blocks over to one of our local restaurants and discover a new favorite dish. Finish the evening in our historic city watching the annual fireworks show presented by the VFW Post 4075. WalkBike Frankfort has requested that the top level of the Capitol Annex parking garage be closed to vehicles (parking available on levels 2-6 with access from Old Lawrenceburg Road).
The Frankfort Jaycees invite the community to be a part of the 66th Annual Frankfort Jaycees Christmas Parade! We are looking forward to ringing in the holiday season with the people of Frankfort and Franklin County.
The parade will be held on Saturday, December 6th, and will be moved back to an evening parade, as requested by so many in the community. Step-off for the parade will be at 5:30 p.m.
This year’s Christmas parade theme is Celebration of Light. We know you will create wonderful, imaginative floats that are keeping with this theme. Awards will be presented for the best floats in the parade and the entries with the most Christmas spirit.
The staging area will again be in the parking area of the Old State Office building at the intersections of Clinton, High and Mero Streets. The route will be the same as last year – going out of the lot at the turn-about at High and Mero, onto Mero, left on Ann, right on Broadway, left on Washington, left on Main and back down High.

Despite the cold and threatening weather, the Kentucky State University Homecoming Parade went off without a hitch. Hundreds of spectators gathered parade route through downtown Frankfort as well as gathered around the corner of Capital Avenue and Second Street. They were treated to floats from throughout the community as well as KSU Clubs and organizations, the royal homecoming court and of course, the KSU Band.
One of the benefits to being a small school in downtown Frankfort is the ability to parade through the streets for a Homecoming Parade. On Friday, the students of Frankfort High did just that! With their subordinates from Second Street School, the residents of South Frankfort and the businesses and state office workers in downtown Frankfort looking on, the students of Frankfort High School took to the streets in a parade. Football players, clubs, seniors, and underclassmen joined the homecoming court and homemade floats in the procession. Frankfort High School went on to beat Lexington Christian 41-21 in Friday night’s game.
