Newnan Cancels Its Christmas Parade


From Special Reports

After careful consideration and consulting with local and regional public health experts, the city of Newnan has made the difficult decision to cancel the City of Newnan Christmas parade this year.

“With approximately thousands of community members attending the parade each year, the health and well-being of staff, volunteers, participants, and supporters is our top priority,” said Hasco Craver, assistant city manager for the city of Newnan.

“Many factors were considered when making this decision, most notably the decreased number of potential participants and adherence to social distancing protocols, which have made it difficult for parade participants to gather and decorate their floats or practice routines

“We thank the members of the community in advance for their patience and understanding,” he added.

It is important to note that the city of Newnan is currently considering an event that will allow the community to enjoy the Christmas season in an appropriate and responsible way.  Stay tuned for more information.
