Is there a Santa Parade this year?

To limit opportunities for public gatherings, the Town is not coordinating a parade this year. The Town dis consider coordinating a reverse parade but there was limited interest from vendors and organizations to participate. Regrettably we understand this comes with disappointment but we look forward to its return in 2022.
