The Asheville Holiday Parade happened Saturday, November 18, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

There were 100 entries in this year's parade, including marching bands and dancers.

The theme was "Holiday Magic," and the 2017 Grand Marshal was WWE Hall of Fame inductee Beth Copeland, the athlete known to WWE fans as Beth "The Glamazon" Phoenix.

Copeland is the youngest person to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as well as a WWE Divas Champion and three-time WWE Woman’s Champion. She's now retired from wrestling and lives in Asheville with her husband, Adam "Edge" Copeland, also a WWE Hall of Fame inductee.

Both Copelands support Eblen Charities, particularly its Headlock on Hunger Program (HOH), where she serves as vice president.

You can watch the Asheville Holiday Parade again when it's broadcast on WLOS ABC 13 on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
