Clarksville, TN – The Fifth Annual SpiritFest – a holiday event from 2:00pm – 5:00pm on Saturday, December 7th – will offer a bounty of free activities, including visits with Santa Claus, rides on the Express Bus, four kids’ inflatables, live music on the new Downtown Commons stage, ice skating, art and gift markets, food trucks and a live nativity with animals.
It will start three hours before Clarksville’s 60th Annual Lighted Christmas Parade, which will pass by its location in Historic Downtown Clarksville.
SpiritFest will take place at its organizers’ facilities and grounds: First Presbyterian Church at 213 Main Street and Trinity Episcopal Church at 317 Franklin Street. To make navigation easy for attendees, an event map and schedule is available at www.spiritfestdowntown.com. Also, during the event, maps and schedules will be available at an information table in the First Presbyterian parking lot.
During the event, guests may use the Planning Commission parking lot on Main street and the Austin Peay State University (APSU) parking lots on the corners of Main Street and Fourth Street (and get an early parking spot for the parade).
“This combination of SpiritFest and the parade lend joy and splendor to the holiday season,” said Rev. Gregory L. Glover, FPC pastor. “So many organizations, businesses and individuals pitch in to provide activities and diversions in the heart of our city for, literally, every age group to enjoy.”
