WILL Santa offend again by wearing a suit with BLACK TRIM?

The 2012 Grand Marshals are Asheville Olympic silver medalists Manteo Mitchell and Lauren Tamayo. The theme is “Silver Bells and Snowflakes,” and the annual parade, a tradition since 1946, is this Saturday at 11 a.m. in downtown Asheville.
