Plans to turn the 29th annual Hatteras Village Christmas Parade into a socially distanced “Unparade” on Dec. 12 have now been cancelled, according to an event organizer. The “Unparade” concept featured a creative twist on the traditional parade format by having the floats and festive displays stay in the same spot while the spectators themselves move, cruising from one bright display to the next.
But with the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, organizer Karla Jarvis sent this message by email today explaining the decision to cancel the event.
“We wanted to make sure we were making the right decisions to keep everyone safe. In light of that, unfortunately, we have decided to cancel the ‘Unparade.’ While we realize this was to be a ‘contactless’ type event, some are still concerned about the uncertainties of what could happen and the rising numbers of infections we are seeing. We still have about a week to go before the event and it’s better for everyone involved if we go ahead and make this decision before people invest more time and money.”
