Contrary to previous reports, the Winchester Christmas parade will be held this year, on December 14 at six pm.
Rachael Boyd with Main Street Winchester asked us to clarify that MSW is not putting on the parade. An “outside community group” is in charge of the event.
“We support it and will share on our social media the parade information and forms, but we are not putting it on,” Ms. Boyd said.
According to a Facebook page, there will be a few adjustments made to the parade this year to keep everyone safe. The following is taken from the Facebook page:
1. The parade will be continuous with no stops. This means you can sit on the sidewalks along Main Street from Hickman Street to Depot Street and enjoy the parade, without feeling like you are missing out on a performance in front of the Court House.
2. After the parade concludes, you are invited down to Depot Street, where Santa will be set up to meet with your kids! There will be a few fun vehicles and floats to check out too!
3. If you want to participate in the parade with a float, group, club or personal entry, please click this link to enter: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSfxTHIBqqDyi…/viewform* The deadline to enter to participate in the Christmas Parade is Monday, Dec. 6th at 5 pm. No exceptions.
