Light The Night Christmas Parade CANCELLED

It is with sadness and regret that the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce announces the CANCELLATION of the 2020 Light The Night Christmas Parade.

 

Our staff and team of volunteers have spent considerable time and energy over the last 30 days researching the viability of a modified plan to move the event to Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park, with the goal of creating a controlled environment with appropriate social distancing. And, we thank the City of Fredericksburg for allowing us the opportunity and providing the support needed to evaluate this option.

 

The space needed to stage both entries and viewers within the park dramatically shortens the route and drastically limits capacity. We are also concerned with the traffic management issues and ill-will that could be created by guests who are unaware of the need to make advance reservations. We know our community is proud of this signature event, so it must be presented with the utmost quality.

 

You may ask, why not produce the parade in its usual Main Street format? We would love to roll our beloved parade in this fashion, but we know creating a dense crowd of 15,000 people is not the best thing for our members and our community at this time. We are proud to have helped lead our business community amidst the pandemic and will not jeopardize the sacrifices they have made to reopen.

 

We are incredibly grateful for the decades of volunteers, parade entrants, sponsors and viewers and promise this beautiful spectacle of light, community and Christmas spirit will return in 2021 when the time is right.
