COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Guests should attend only after evaluating their own health risk. Your attendance at the Light The Night Christmas Parade & AfterGlow constitutes your understanding of these risks, and you voluntarily assume such risks related to exposure to COVID-19. The Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce cannot be held liable if you contract COVID-19. Help protect yourself by following safety protocols, and state and local public health recommendations and mandates.

 

If you, or a member of your travel party, has fever exceeding 100 degrees or other commonly-known symptoms, please stay home. Attendees with vaccinated and unvaccinated parties should consider the most recent CDC guidance to limit both the transmission and exposure to COVID-19 and its variants.
