The holiday freight train is rolling into Lexington KY right in the nick of time!
Last night the festivities were changed up from past celebrations for the Christmas Parade and the Celebration of Lights. They were combined and at night! What a great idea!
Usually, the parade is in the morning at 10AM and the lighting of the tree on another day. The crowd that gathered last night got many new surprises and they stayed warm with hot chocolate and coffee supplied by many downtown restaurants.
At the center of the festivities, people crowed around fabulously decorated Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza to see Santa, Mayor Jim Newberry and his family turn a "magic key" that lit up all of the city's new holiday decor. This even included fireworks shot off the district courthouse! WoW! Click this for The Lexington Herald Leader story.
With 2 miles of garland and 2 miles of new Christmas lights Lexington city workers worked like Santa's Elves in getting it all completed in time for the parade and magic key ceremony.
I can't help but feel that everyone here in Central Kentucky is excited this year about the holidays. There is so much to be thankful for. Richmond, KY celebrated a few nights ago with their annual Christmas Parade with Santa and it was a blast!
