santa and mrs. clausCENTRAL CITY, Ky. (11/20/17) — The air was chilly and the exhibits were super cool for the annual Central City Christmas Parade Sunday.

There were many participants offering everything from cartoon characters, Santa, Mrs. Clause along with elves and Rudolph to marching bands, fire departments and a total of 12 constructed floats. The event raised $1,200 for Make a Better Christmas for Muhlenberg children.

There were two categories of winners — commercial and non-commercial.
