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.
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!
