Monticello Lighted Christmas Parade Cancelled

Press Release from Cindy Beck, Chairperson - Monticello Lighted Christmas Parade
November 4, 2020  3:42PM

Due to the rising numbers in Covid-19 cases, it is with deep regret that we must cancel the 2020 Monticello Lighted Christmas Parade. Rotary Club of Monticello and Streets of Monticello Association, (S.O.M.A.), would like to thank all who have already worked so hard in preparing for the Parade. But, for the safety of the spectators, volunteers, and participants we feel it is prudent to cancel for this year. We will be back next year in 2021 and be bigger, better, and stronger!

Have a Merry Christmas!
