The Ingersoll Rotary Christmas Parade has been cancelled for 2020 due to concerns surrounding the pandemic.
INGERSOLL - The Ingersoll Rotary Christmas Parade has been cancelled for 2020.
The Rotary Club made the announcement via Facebook on Monday afternoon:
"It is with great regret and sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Ingersoll Rotary Christmas Parade.
With the uncertainty of the current COVID-19 pandemic, concerns for the float entries, bands, volunteers and most importantly the health and safety of all our community’s residents and visitors, we have made the tough decision to not move forward with organizing the parade this year.
We understand that our community has been greatly affected by the pandemic and the cancelling of yet another event is hard on everyone. That said, we simply cannot take the risk associated and we feel this is the socially responsible decision for all involved.
It is our goal to come back with a great parade in 2021 where our whole community can come together safely to celebrate the holiday season."
