|2020 Covington Christmas Parade Canceled|
|Covington, VA (Nov. 24, 2020) - The following news release was prepared by the Old Towne Covington organization:|
"At a meeting held on Monday, November 23, 2020, Olde Town Covington decided that the 2020 Covington Christmas Parade would be cancelled. The deadline for entries was November 23, 2020 and Olde Town Covington only received five entries for this year’s parade. Olde Town Covington required this deadline due to the new “reverse” parade format. We deeply regret this decision but due to the low entry numbers and our concern for our residents’ health, we feel this decision is necessary. Olde Town Covington also voted to donate the money we typically use for prizes to the 2020 Christmas Mother program to help those in need in our community. We look forward to the possibility of having celebrations in the future and until then, everyone have a safe, happy and healthy holiday season!"
