Covid19 Pandemic Forces Cancellation of 25th Annual Sarasota Holiday Parade
With the holiday’s still several months away another event has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus. The 25th Annual Sarasota Holiday Parade has been cancelled.
There were just too many variables involved to try and put on the event in a safe manner. The event which was originally scheduled for December 4, 2020, has been canceled because there was just too much of a possibility of spreading the infection to the thousands of people who attend the event and of course all of the folks who are on the parade floats. The organizers of the event made the announcement on the parade website and on Facebook.
From the holiday parade website: In the interest of our community’s health and safety, the 25th Anniversary of the Sarasota Holiday Parade is postponed to Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021. Although December 2020 is still several months away, parade participants generally start working together to practice walking entries or build float entries starting in August or September.
Past participants will be receiving an email to update their contact information. New participants: Please contact us to be added to the 2021 participant list in order to receive information along the way.
The parade website will be updated as more information becomes available.
