It is with heavy heart that I must advise that this year’s Christmas parade is canceled. The parade committee worked tirelessly to host a parade while adapting to these unprecedented times caused by the current pandemic, but alas we have failed. There just simply was not enough time to attain enough entries into the parade to make it worthwhile. We want to thank the city of DeLand, the staff at DeLand high school and all of you that submitted an entry for this year’s parade. We want to assure you that we will be back for an even bigger, better parade for Christmas 2021.
