The annual kickoff to the Christmas season in Vinton scheduled for Thursday, November 19, 2020, has been CANCELED. The Patriotic Christmas Parade will NOT be held as planned. Because of the cancelation, Santa will NOT be arriving in town that night either.
We received word today of some good news and bad news. The bad news is the cancellation of the 13th Annual Veterans Patriotic Christmas Parade tomorrow (11/19) night.But the good news: Santa Claus had his flights already booked to come to Vinton. In true Yuletide fashion and with the year of 2020 taking another thing from us, Santa still wanted to see the children (and adults) of Vinton tomorrow night.
