The 2020 Lebanon Carriage Parade has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Lebanon will not have its traditional horse-drawn carriage parade and Christmas festival this year due to ongoing concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Lebanon Area Chamber of Commerce posted a statement on social media confirming their decision.
"In response to concerns that have been raised with accelerating COVID numbers both in Warren County and regionally, we have decided it is best to cancel this year’s Horse Drawn Carriage Parade. While we are extremely disappointed that we are unable to host this parade, we believe that not doing so will help prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as protect the legacy of the Horse Drawn Carriage Parade & Festival for generations to come. The health and well-being of our community, businesses, parade participants, volunteers and guests is our number one priority. We look forward to the return of our Horse Drawn Carriage Parade on December 4, 2021. In the meantime, please stay safe."
