Christmas parade cancelled, Santa still coming to the Green

The City of Lawrenceburg has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Christmas parade, which had been scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5.

The following statement was issued by the city, explaining the cancellation – “Unfortunately, this year we are having to cancel the Christmas Parade.  With the new mandates, this prohibits the ACHS Marching band, sports teams, and groups from participating.  Anderson County alone had 25 positive cases yesterday.  We looked at doing a reverse parade, but lack of early community interest did not make it feasible.  With the success of the drive thru Light Up Lawrenceburg this past week we plan on having Santa on top of the antique firetruck at The Green on Saturday, December 5 from 11:00 am until 1:00 p.m. (weather permitting).  This will give kids an opportunity to have their photo made with Santa while dropping off their letter.”
