On Saturday, Nov. 22, Asheville’s annual holiday parade made its way through the streets of downtown. The festive lineup included floats, marching bands, majorettes, civic organizations, a visit from Santa and — perhaps an even bigger deal than St. Nick, judging from the number of exclamation points used in related tweets — “American Idol” winner Caleb Johnson as parade grand marshal.
