Tis the season to be jolly on Frankfort Avenue

Frankfort Avenue was filled with festive cheer the first Saturday in December.

Fa-La-La on Frankfort, an annual event sponsored by the Frankfort Avenue Business Association and Louisville Water, featured lots of holiday-themed fun and an appearance from Santa Claus.

The event kicked off with the 25th Annual Santa Sprint and Stroll, a 5K run through Cherokee Park.

After the race, families enjoyed pictures with Santa and Louisville Water’s fun-loving mascot, Tapper.

Pups dressed in their cutest holiday costumes paraded down Frankfort Ave. for the Holiday Dog Walk.

The event wrapped up with Christmas caroling and Light Up Frankfort Avenue, featuring food and drink specials from restaurants along the corridor.
