BECKLEY, WV (WVNS)– The city of Beckley will still hold their annual Christmas Parade with a little twist. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the city will put on a reverse Christmas parade.
Director of Beckley Events Jill Moorefield said the parade normally brings a lot of people to Uptown Beckley and this is still a way for people to enjoy the holiday season.
“The theme is Christmas Winter Wonderland. And we’re just hoping for a really good turnout and that people will enjoy something a little different this year but still be able to celebrate the holiday,” Moorefield said.
The parade is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5th, 2020 at Woodrow Wilson High School. Any organizations or businesses that would like to participate can contact the city to sign up.
