November 19th - 21st
Rock Falls, IL
In a joint discussion, the planners of the Twin Cities Holiday Parade felt it was in the best interest of our organizations to not plan a parade for 2019. There had been several parade cancellations in recent years due weather. Additionally the parade suffered due to poor event attendance, numerous parade entries canceling due to weather on the day of the event, and while it was fun the group believed there were opportunities to better use time and talent on other community events.
Thank you to all who participated in the past.
