City Administration officials are aware of the unfounded rumors regarding potential protests planned during the City’s annual Christmas parade this Sunday.
The City administration has taken steps to insure the parade is conducted in the outstanding manner it is known for, while insuring sufficient safety measures are in place for the event.
It is the City’s intent to have the Christmas parade that everyone can enjoy in the holiday spirit it is intended to represent, while keeping everybody safe from potential risks, as has always been done for every Christmas parade and City events.
The City hopes that everyone will respect the fact that the Christmas parade this year is honoring Wendy Tickel and her class of exceptional children as the parade’s Grand Marshalls.
