  • Vine Grove, Radcliff ring in Christmas season

    Northern Hardin County kicked off the first weekend in December with holiday celebrations.

    Vine Grove held its annual Dickens of a Christmas, while Radcliff tried out its revamped holiday festivities.

    Radcliff hosted its annual tree lighting, but didn’t have its traditional parade. The city instead hosted a new event, caroling at Saunders Springs on Saturday and held its annual Festival of Trees, Mayor J.J. Duvall said.

    He said the city wanted to do something different by adding caroling. It also made good use of the cabins at Saunders Spring.
