  • Festival of Light

  • The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade past New York's Central Park and the New Year's Day Rose Parade in Pasadena may be the most famous stomps down public streets. But Ashland's Festival of Light succeeds without giant cartoon balloons or flower-bedecked floats. Instead, Santa Claus, dancers and carolers will merrily stroll East Main Street on Friday, Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving.

  • The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade past New York's Central Park and the New Year's Day Rose Parade in Pasadena may be the most famous stomps down public streets.

    The parade is aptly named the Festival of Light because a signal will be made and suddenly a million snow-colored dots will illuminate downtown buildings.
    The event starts at 1 p.m. with music in the Plaza in what could be sunshine. At 5 p.m., Santa's parade rolls by children and their parents who have lined the sidewalks from the Ashland library to the Plaza.
