The Greater Minden Chamber announced today that the Christmas in Minden events that were slated for the weekend of Dec. 11 – 12 are now cancelled. This includes the Holiday Trail of Lights Hayride, the Christmas Parade, the Tree Lighting Ceremony, and other activities scheduled for this event.
In a statement from the chamber, they explain, “After careful consultation with our community partners regarding the health and safety of everyone in our community – we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Christmas In Minden events slated for Friday December 11th and Saturday December 12th,” their statement read.
It does seem as though they are going to be experimenting with how to continue to celebrate the holiday season while also keeping participants safe.
“Be on the lookout for some virtual Christmas opportunities. We are encouraging you to practice safe social distancing while still enjoying your family and continuing to shop local, travel Webster and enjoy all Webster Parish has to offer this holiday season,” the statement read.
