Without question, the year 2020 was difficult for families, jobs, and everyone's mental and emotional health. To bring some joy to the holiday season, the Christmas Spirit Committee put together an enjoyable evening for the community. With many sponsors, the funds were used to light up the museum, Main Street, and the North Fork Bridge. Characters dressed up and danced as the cars went by in a reverse parade. Elvis sang from the porch of the museum and his music made it into everyone's car radios by way of a FM transmitter. The Grinch was as tall as the porch roof and waved at kids from on top of his stilts. Santa and Mrs. Clause handed out candy canes and chocolate to families who drove by. Down on Main Street at the courthouse, the Beattyville Kiwanis Club did a drive through treat bag giveaway. They have been giving away Christmas treat bags for 100 years and continued the tradition this year. For a night, it almost seemed that the world was back to normal. The kids also loved looking at all the fire trucks lined up on the property. Thank you Beattyville/Lee County Fire Dept for participating.
Here is a video slideshow of the decorations and activates during Christmas Spirit 2020.
