Everybody loves a parade? Lexington’s annual Christmas Parade has always been a weekend affair, but this year relocates to a Thursday evening (just in time for… rush hour?) We’ll see.

Love old movies? While you’re downtown, take in the 1926 movie Sparrows at the Kentucky Theatre, with an author introduction and book signing by Christel Schmidt.

Still feeling nostalgic? BCTC’s Theatre program and Tim X Davis will present It’s a Wonderful Life.

Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas ExtravaganzaFRIDAY DECEMBER 7, 2012

Tonight the Brian Setzer Orchestra is in town to perform their Christmas Rocks! Extravaganza at the Singletary Center. Ace’s own Kakie Urch even wrote a preview about it.

And if it’s December, you know there’s a Handel’s Messiah and a Nutcracker going on somewhere.

SATURDAY DECEMBER 8, 2012

What time is the UK game? There’s no planning a Saturday without that.

Run, run Rudolph? Time for the annual 5k Reindeer Ramble.

Love Lexington’s Rollergirls? Check out their Holiday Shopping Bazaar at the Bread Box (the West Sixth building).

Later in the evening, Lexington’s Coralee and the Townies will be at Willie’s, along with Bethesda

SUNDAY DECEMBER 9, 2012

This afternoon is Lexington Philharmonic’s popular annual Candy Cane concert.

Also this afternoon, the Wild Fig bookstore will host a poetry reading. Celebration of Song is down at Victorian Square, and for the kids: Aesop’s Fables at Lexington Children’s Theatre.

What Made Milwaukee Famous? These guys. And they are playing tonight at Cosmic Charlie’s.

A toast to author Fred Noe as he signs his book Beam, Straight Up, the first book written about the Beam family of bourbon fame, at Joseph-Beth.

THURSDAY DECEMBER 13, 2012

Have a love for history, the movie Lincoln, with a dash of Oprah? Lexington’s Mary Todd Lincoln house hosts “Mrs. Lincoln’s favorite things” tour.
