In the best interest of safety and security of spectators, participants, volunteers, vendors, and sponsors the City of Madison Christmas Parade committee has come to the difficult decision to cancel the annual Christmas parade. The parade was scheduled for Saturday December 8, 2018.
“We realize this is a disappointment for everyone involved; however, with a 100% rain forecast we would rather err on the side of caution” said Paul Finley, Mayor of Madison. Multiple forecasts have called for heavy rain and strong/gusty winds to occur throughout the weekend. At this time, the parade will not be rescheduled.
