Spectator Info

 We encourage spectators to watch the parade from within their personal vehicles in order to optimize social distancing. If spectators would like to watch from the street, we require that appropriate mask-wearing and social distancing protocols are respected in order to remain in compliance with the county guidelines and our formal reopening plan for this event.


Gathering in groups to view the parade is not allowed so we are expanding our route so that spectators are able to sufficiently spread out.

View our county's COVID-19 guidelines here.

*If you are NOT interested in wearing a mask, keeping 6 feet part while in public, and/or using sanitizer while visiting locations around town, please do not enter this Lighted Parade.
