For the second year in a row, the Winchester Lions Club is at the helm of the annual downtown Christmas parade.
Lions Club president Lynn Hollingsworth said that planning the parade has been hard work, but fun.
“A lot of people, nowadays … with the way the economy is, they’re just getting tired of sitting around the house. It doesn’t cost anything,” Hollingsworth said of the parade.
The parade begins at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, on Main Street.
Hollingsworth said spectators can expect an event similar to years past, including the George Rogers Clark High School Marching Band, local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, and Santa Claus.
“I like looking at the kids … with churches and stuff getting involved,” Hollingsworth said.
He praised the parade for getting people more involved in community events. Floats are prepared by churches, clubs and civic organizations.
