Walkway of Lights parade canceled due to spike in COVID-19 cases

The City of Marion’s Walk­way of Lights Parade has been canceled due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.

After consideration from Grant County Health Officer Dr. David Moore and the Grant County Health Department, Marion Mayor Jess Alumbaugh made the decision yesterday.

“This is absolute­ly the last thing we want to hap­pen, but unfor­tu­nate­ly the num­bers are rapid­ly increas­ing. My main con­cern is the health of our com­mu­ni­ty and both Dr. Moore and I agree this is the safest thing to do,” Alumbaugh said.

The City of Mar­i­on and Walk­way of Lights Com­mit­tee still encour­age folks to vis­it the Walk­way of Lights dis­play this sea­son. The dis­play will be lit at 6 p.m. on Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 21st, and will con­tin­ue to be open from 6 – 10 p.m. each evening until the end of the year.
