South Boston Christmas parade nixed, but Santa to visit neighborhoods

SoVaNow.com / October 12, 2020


Due to public health and safety concerns, the 2020 South Boston Christmas Parade has been cancelled.

Tamyra Vest, executive director of Destination Downtown South Boston, said the decision — by DDSB and the Town of South Boston — is in the best interest of citizens, to protect people from the covid pandemic.

“Due to the size, scope, and impact of the Christmas Parade along Main Street, accompanied by the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus in the upcoming weeks and months, it is with deep disappointment that the 2020 Christmas Parade is cancelled.”

Even though the parade will not take place, DDSB has arranged for Santa to travel through South Boston on the Santa Express Tour. Santa will ride through neighborhoods waving to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Elves will be with Santa to collect children’s letters for Christmas.

A list of days, times, and neighborhoods will be released at a later date.
