The Evansville Christmas on North Main Parade and Santa's Workshop have both been canceled for 2021, according to organizers.

The Evansville Christmas Parade on North Main Committee said the decision to cancel the events was made with several factors in consideration.

"With the anticipation of more than 10,000 people attending the parade and more than 300 attending Santa’s workshop, we feel that there is just no distancing that can make it safe enough during these Covid times," an announcement from the committee said. 

Another factor in the decision to cancel the events was the upcoming implosion of the 420 Main Street building, which is slated to happen on the same day as the parade.

Besides that, the Evansville Christmas Parade on North Main Committee says a lack of volunteers, street closures, and the booking of the Civic Center parking lot for an earlier event influenced the decision.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
