Festival of Lights Drive-Thru Parade

Drive-Thru Parade Cancelled

In consideration of and caring for each individual person in our community, Downtown Crystal Lake has made the difficult decision to cancel the Festival of Lights Drive-Thru parade on Friday, November 27th.

The decision was made after careful consideration of the following:

  • Surge in COVID cases in McHenry County
  • The Governor’s recommendation to limit non-essential activities
  • Concern for the safety of our volunteers
  • Cancellation by key parade units due to COVID concerns

Ultimately, the health and safety of every person involved in our community must be considered.

We ask for your support to maintain a positive perspective among all those involved in Downtown Crystal Lake and the community.
