Emmy-winning television star, celebrity stylist and fashion designer Carson Kressley will join us at this year’s parade to support Grand Marshal Florence Henderson. Kressley was most recently a “fan-favorite” on ABC’s world-wide hit, Dancing With The Stars and recently headlined as the host of Dancing With the Stars Live in Las Vegas.
Kressley is a New York Times best-selling author with three books to his credit. When Kressley is not starring on stage or screen, he can be found astride one of his American Saddlebred show horses, with which he has achieved World Champion status. His passion for horses brings him to the tri-state repeatedly to ride at the world-famous DeLovely Farms Equestrian Training Center based across the river in Rockport, Indiana.
The Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade Association is proud to announce that television icon and Owensboro native Florence Henderson will serve as Grand Marshal for the 79th annual Owensboro Christmas Parade on Saturday, November 21, 2015. Full Story
