New Candy Policy

In an effort to prioritize the safety and well-being of children attending our 4th of July parade, the Chamber of Commerce has made the decision to discontinue the tradition of throwing candy from floats. Instead, candy distribution will be managed by individuals walking along the parade route, ensuring a safer experience for all participants. This proactive measure underscores our commitment to fostering a family-friendly environment while still maintaining the spirit of celebration that defines this cherished community event.
