LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- It's a tradition that goes back almost 30 years.
Bardstown Road Aglow took place Saturday night in the Highlands.
The event brought out a lot of people despite the cold temperatures.
Bardstown Road Aglow dates back to the first Saturday in December 1985, when storefronts started displaying lit candles in their windows as a symbol to let people of all different backgrounds know they were welcome.
Business owners today tell WDRB they're proud for what the event stands for and are also happy with the boost of business it brings.
"I think people are realizing shopping locally makes a huge difference in our economy and our neighborhood. In this shop and other shops along the corridor, there's things here you can't find at big box stores," said Kelli Milligan of Renaissance by Design.
Bardstown Road Aglow falls on the first Saturday of every December.
Many shops were offering finger foods and hot cider to customers.
Trolleys with musicians aboard took shoppers from store to store.
