The Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade Association has decided to cancel this year's parade. The volunteer Board of Directors making the call after consulting with local health officials, some past participants, and health professionals.

The Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade was scheduled for November 21, 2020.

The board pointed to a recent surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations since September 20 as one of the main reasons for the cancellation. 

"While we will not be hosting the parade as we know it, we are very excited to report that we are in communication with some very special organizations in order to partner together with them to help our community celebrate the holiday season...

We will announce how our holiday partnerships will look and how families can celebrate with us in the weeks to come once those partnerships are finalized," the Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade Association wrote on Facebook.

The organization says it will begin planning in January for next year's Christmas parade.
