For immediate release
The Carmi Chamber of Commerce have regretfully decided to cancel the Lighted Christmas parade due to the Governor moving us to Tier 3 mitigation. We do not want to go against the guidelines that have been issued for our state. This was a very hard decision to make as we truly did not want to cancel. We as the Chamber do not feel it is in our best interest to go against the advisement of our local health department.
We want to thank everyone that was going to participate, and we hope to be able to celebrate together next year.
