By Bert Etling, Ashland.news
Thousands of people haunted Ashland streets Monday, packing downtown corridors with every manner of creative costume as the Ashland Chamber of Commerce’s Children’s Halloween Celebration returned for the first time since 2019 after cancellations the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following the parade celebrants flocked to Ashland Plaza, where dance troupes entertained before packed crowds. One attendee estimated the total crowd at at least 5,000, and possibly up to 10,000, the largest gathering seen downtown in years.
