It was with sad hearts that we had to cancel the 25th Annual Parade of Lights in December due to inclement weather.

But … we are happy to announce that we will be holding a “Christmas in July” Parade of Lights on Saturday, July 21. Admission is FREE. The parade will follow a 14-mile route from city of Richmond to the Varina-Enon Bridge.
