When I heard the news of dear friend, Adam Johnston, being named honorary Grand Marshal of the Owensboro Christmas Parade it put a huge smile on my face.Adam has been a resident of Owensboro all his life and has been involved with the parade for as long as I can remember.  He has done it all from being a member of the parade organization to serving as chairman of the volunteer parade committee, working a tireless amount of hours to make sure our town has the most amazing Christmas Parade in Kentucky.  Johnston is responsible for bringing well known names such as; Florence Henderson, Carson Kressley, the Budweiser Clydesdales, and so many more organizations to Owensboro.
