Lebanon's Christmas Festival Horse Drawn Carriage Parade December 7 2013

Clip clop.  Clip clop.  You can almost hear the sounds of the approaching Lebanon Christmas Festival & Horse Drawn Carriage Parade coming down Broadway!  Three weeks from today downtown Lebanon Ohio will swell with visitors (about 200,000!) getting into the Christmas spirit as horse drawn carriage after horse drawn carriage adorned in their holiday best parade down the street!  (We've ever heard a rumor that the Budweiser Clydesdales will be making an appearance this year!)

Lebanon Ohio's Horse Drawn Carriage Christmas Parade

The December 7th event will be the 25th annual edition and is one of the most popular Cincinnati area Christmas events, and why wouldn't it be?  You get TWO parades, the first at 1 p.m. and then a candlelit version at 7 p.m.!  Wrapped around the Lebanon Horse Drawn Carriage Parade is the Lebanon Christmas Festival, so you can make a day out of it!  And some guy in a red suit from the North Pole and his spouse will be making an appearance too!

Add to the Christmas celebration choirs, dancers, street vendors, and plenty more!  You can get some Christmas shopping done with some unique gifts from the downtown shops, or maybe have breakfast or lunch at one of the local eateries!  Get a little chilly?  Have a cup of hot cocoa to warm your insides!  

Now as far as parking, there are some public lots for free, but don't expect those spots to last long!  You'll also have free enterprise at work and parking nearby for about $5, or you can park on the residential streets for free.  Allow plenty of time to find a spot and wear your walking shoes because you're probably going to be a few blocks away if you go for the neighborhood spots.  Make sure you don't block the residents driveways or they may lose their Christmas spirit!

Lots of people bring their collapsible chairs and grab a spot on Broadway for prime viewing, the route boxes around downtown, so there are other spots that will work for watching the show!

So dress warmly and have a great time at the parade!

Anita, I went a few years ago and it was a lot of fun!  The biggest challenge is the parking, so visitors should expect to hike a few blocks (or more).

Bob, It was a chilly day and I stood on a street corner with my glove off so I could work my camera!  I was REALLY ready for some hot chocolate after all those carriages went by!

Jon, Those pics are from a few years ago and a bit unusual to have the snow flakes falling that early in the season!  What I don't expect is SoCal weather this time of year :)

I love when Santa arrives each year at our parade.  I hope you have dry weather at least... like you, I don't expect warm in December, but hey cold and hot coco and a parade... awesome day.

BLiz,  That is such a great photo collage.  Seeing this post is a reality check on how close we are getting to Christmas. It looks like a grand event that locals look forward to and don't want to miss ... even if it is raining!

Tammy, Needless to say, the kids love seeing Santa and Mrs. Clause coming down the street!

Kathleen, Hard to believe, but not all that far away!  We had snow showers that day, a perfect setting for a Christmas parade :)

The only after dark parade I've ever seen is at Disney. I'd like to see the candlelit version. I bet it's beautiful.

Larry, It was fun (but cold) the one I attended a few years ago.

Tammie, I haven't done the night version either, but I'm told it's the busier of the two parades for attendance.
