Due to the serious weather events that happened over Thanksgiving, with snow falling to some 34+ inches, downing trees and power lines and inclement weather arriving on December 7th, the parade has been canceled. The road conditions that remain and the impending weather is not safe.
While The Lake Arrowhead Communities Chamber of Commerce is disappointed and saddened, they must put the safety of all of their residence and patrons first. The parade was originally scheduled for December 7, 2019. The Chamber has released their parade schedule for next year, with the parade being held on December 5, 2020.
If you have already paid for rentals, signs, entry fee's and/or sponsorships, but not limited to, the Lake Arrowhead Communities Chamber of Commerce is not able to recoup any of the costs already spent on the parade. They will be applying all entry fees and sponsorships to next year's parade. They will also be giving their sponsors extra promotions on advertising through social media, chamber e-blasts and their web-page for the duration of the year.
While this is extremely disappointing and an event we all look forward to, this was and is the right call for the safety of everyone. There will be other Christmas events around the mountain, so be on the look out for events, times and places as they become available.
