One of my favorite Church Hill things is the Candlelight Walk, only because when everyone’s gathered in Libby Hill Park with their candles and Santa starts singing “Jingle Bells” many ostensible adults follow up with “Batman smells.” Hilarious.

Please bring friends and come out to the SATURDAY NIGHT CELEBRATION! The Slack Family Band is playing and they are sooooo good and so much fun! If you haven’t heard them, it’s time. We also have lots of donated food from our local restaurants. This is a great time to come out and enjoy yourself with friends and neighbors. Meet new ones, bring some you already know. Just come out and help us prove our point that making this less of a “Ball” and more of a party will get all sorts of folks to join us this year. We… Read more »

Candlelight write-up needed to say there are two starting points … one at 7:15 at Jefferson Park, which it did. And, the other at St. John’s Church for Vespers service which begins at 7 pm. You have to choose where you start but at about 7: 45, everyone meets-up at corner of 25th and Grace to walk together to Libbly Hill for the caroling, cider and Santa.

For years, the Richmond Police Department was involved directing traffic during the candlelight procession providing an organized, safe crossing for those coming down the stairs from the church and crossing 25th and E. Grace Streets. It didn’t happen last year making for a somewhat disjointed procession and confusing for motorists traveling up or down 25th Street. Since the Procession passes in front of my house, I was wondering if the CHA has thought about scheduling one or two patrol cars for this event this year.
