Carmi Chamber Cancels Christmas Parade Amid Tier 3 Mitigations

CARMI – Due to Governor JB Pritzker moving the state to Tier 3 mitigation, the Carmi Chamber of Commerce announced the cancellation of the Lighted Christmas Parade.

The Chamber’s Executive Director, Kelly Northcott, said in a statement Tuesday the chamber doesn’t want to go against the guidelines issued for the state. Northcott added it was “a very hard decision to make as the Chamber did not want to cancel.”

She also noted, “the Chamber did not feel it was in the best interest to go against the advisement of our local health department.”
