Due to COVID-19, Rapid City cancels annual Festival of Lights parade


News Staff - November 20, 2020

RAPID CITY, S.D. - The city of Rapid City has announced that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Festival of Lights parade has been cancelled.

On Friday, Rapid City announced the annual parade, scheduled for November 28th, will not happen to ensure the public's safety.

Connie Olson, Steering Committee Chair, said safety and well being were top of mind when making such a difficult decision.

Olson says they have had several float entries already pull out due to the pandemic.

She says those who have registered and paid to enter a float in this year's parade will be reimbursed their entry fee or allowed to roll it over to next year's parade.

The Festival of Lights parade has only been canceled once before -- a blizzard that made travel and being outdoors dangerous.
