COLUMBIA — The city of Ashland held its annual parade on Saturday. The parade started at South Henry Clay Boulevard and ended at Main Street. A couple of hundred people participated in the parade.
The annual parade has been happening for about 20 years.
“It’s a fun time to get out and visit with neighbors and show some community spirit,” Barb Henke-Christopher said. She’s watched the parade every year since she moved to Ashland in 1994, and this is the first year she rode in a truck with her husband in the parade.
Children waited downtown for the parade. Riley Nichols, 6, and Megan Nichols, 4, enjoyed the parade by picking up candy and balloons.
“(I like the parade) because there is candy in it,” Riley Nichols said.
