Lexington to host holiday lighting festival
On Saturday Lexington will be lighting up its Christmas tree and Menorah during the Holiday Lighting Festival from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Natural Christmas trees are expected to cost 10-15% more this season due to the cost of fertilizer and fuel making it more expensive for local farms to produce their crop. Sunday was the last day to chop down a tree at Barker's Christmas Tree Farm, but reservations were fully booked for the day.
A shooting threat against protestors lead to the Bowling Green Christmas Parade getting canceled on Saturday. Bowling Green Police Department said there were at least three groups of people who had planned a protest at noon. The police said they learned of a plan to shoot anyone protesting or anyone aiding the protestors prior to the planned parade and protests.
