Due to Coronavirus concerns, the 2020 Lafayette Christmas Parade, sponsored by Sonic has been canceled.
In a story from KLFY TV-10, officials with Kergan Bros. Sonic said they made the decisions after consulting with local law enforcement and city officials.
“This wasn’t an easy decision, but we agree that protecting residents’ health is most important,” says Gary Wilkerson, president of Kergan Bros. Sonic. “We look forward to the parade returning next year, and we wish everyone a safe holiday season.”
The Lafayette Christmas parade began in 1947 and has always been Santa’s official arrival to the city.
