Despite the rain and the cold today, people lined the streets for Asheville's 73rd annual Holiday Parade.
Bad weather forced some to drop out, like the marching bands. But there was still something for everyone.
News 13 Photojournalist Ben Robinson caught up with people there, getting some insight on what keeps everyone coming to the parade, even in the rain.
News 13 will re-air the parade at 9 a.m. Thanksgiving morning, and again on Christmas morning from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m.
