Christmas parade brings crowd to downtown Ashland

ASHLAND, Ky. —  Winchester Avenue was buzzing with holiday cheer and excitement Tuesday evening as the annual Winter Wonderland of Lights Christmas Parade weaved through downtown Ashland.

“It’s just tradition to come,” said Hulett who explained he has watched the parade for around 60 years.
