Lisbon parade set at fairgrounds

LISBON — The village’s annual Christmas parade will be held today, with a twist. Instead of a parade downtown, the event will be a drive-thru affair from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the county fairgrounds. Because of the Covid-19 virus, the floats will remain in place while motorists drive through the fairgrounds. According to LaDawn Whitman of the Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the event, about 30 organizations will have floats, with those on the float required to maintain social distancing. Santa Claus will be featured on one of the floats and greet passing children, but neither he nor any of the other participants will be handing out candy.
