This year our Community Holiday Parade will be a car-free, encouraging participants to Roll, Scoot, and Stroll their way down the parade route. We ask that there be no cars parked on the parade route and no parking signs will be placed a minimum of 72 hours in advance. Be sure to join us as we kick off the holiday season!
