After much deliberation the Dinwiddie County Chamber of Commerce is sad to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Dinwiddie Christmas Parade. This decision was not made lightly; we spoke with surrounding communities as well as some of our regular participants to discuss different options and safety plans. In the end, it came down to the importance of the safety for our community spectators, parade participants, and parade workers, in addition to working within the current Covid-19 guidelines for outdoor activities. We know how much the community looks forward to the parade each year and we sincerely thank you for that support. As you may know, the parade fees that are collected are then used to award scholarships to graduating seniors, the Dinwiddie Chamber of Commerce Board will be looking at options for a Spring time event. Details will come as they are available. For more information about the scholarship program, you may contact info@dinwiddiechamber.org
Please continue to stay safe, stay well, and be #DINWIDDIESTRONG
