I grew up in Ky. As a child I thought it was the coolest place to live. Population was about 25,000. Our main street was called Winchester Ave that started from one of town, went all the way thru to the next burb. This street went on for miles.
Our downtown was really neat, we had 3 dimes stores, several banks, 2 movie theaters, clothing stores, several shoe stores, drug stores and all sorts of shops. It was a busy downtown area.
At Christmas the downtown transformed into something out of a story book. Fresh greenery was strung across the streets with colored lights. A large lit centerpiece was placed in the center of each swag that went across the street. Each block had a different centerpiece. A true sight to behold for a young child.
