Holiday Drive-Thru Parade Cancelled

Leesburg, VA (December 9, 2020) – The “Glitter and Glow Drive Thru”, scheduled in place of the traditional Christmas and Holiday Parade, has been cancelled.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, parade guidelines were created to keep participants safe and socially distanced during the event. However, feedback from potential parade participants about the concern to safely build floats for their organizations led staff to move forward with canceling the event.

"We felt with the limited number of participants, we would not be putting on the best possible event for the Town,” said Events & Community Outreach Manager Linda Fountain.

It was a difficult decision to cancel, she said, but based on feedback from past parade participants, it was the right decision.

“It was a great idea but one that couldn’t be supported during a pandemic,” Fountain said. 

No other activity has been scheduled in its place.
