HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The first ever lighted Christmas Parade presented by Ad Astra Radio and Downtown Hutch was a big success Saturday night! We would like to thank all who worked behind the scenes in making the event happen and also thank all who participated. The floats looked phenomenal.

Also on the stage were the local Hutchinson celebrities judging the parade including Representative Jason Probst, David Teufel, Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Debra Teufel, and Hutchinson City Manager Mary Grace Clements.
