The Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade plans to return in 2021 Lawrence, Kan. – With public health restrictions lessening, the Lawrence Old Fashioned Christmas Parade is planning to hold the 2021 parade,
The Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the much-loved parade for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Always held the first Saturday in December, the Lawrence Christmas Parade is one of the most unique parades in the nation. Authentic horse-drawn carriages parading down Massachusetts Street have helped kick off the holiday season for 27 years. Despite the cancellation, the parade plans to offer alternative activities for this year, and return for its 28th edition in 2021.
Due to the ongoing uncertainty from COVID 19 and potential reconfiguration of Massachusetts Street to accommodate safe business reopening, we feel it is prudent to put parade plans on hold at this time.
The Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade has updated its guidelines for participants.
Scheduled for Saturday, December 5, 2020, the Lawrence Christmas Parade is one of the most unique parades in the nation.
