Santa Claus has come to town. After making stops at the Clark County Public Library and the Bluegrass Heritage Museum, Santa has made his way to Winchester's new Winter Wonderland, where he will be until Christmas. The Winter Wonderland was created by Darian Sasher when she learned the old Wildcat Mattress building on Shoppers Drive would be empty while the owners set up a new store on the Bypass. “We've turned an empty concrete space into a winter wonderland. I think for a community like Winchester, it's totally awesome,” Sasher said.
