MADISON CHAMBER & INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT: “A Very Merry Madison Christmas Parade” Delayed

Madison Chamber & Industrial Development issued the following announcement on Nov. 29.

Due to high winds, heavy rain, and potential thunderstorms forecast for most of Saturday, the City of

Madison and the Christmas Parade committee has made the decision to delay “A Very Merry Madison

Christmas Parade” until 2pm on Sunday, December 2 nd.

“While we realize that moving something as iconic as the parade will unfortunately cause some

inconveniences, we feel strongly that delaying until Sunday – when the weather forecast is much better

– will result in the safest and best parade experience for participants and spectators alike, and prevents

the parade from being canceled altogether. We hope by making the announcement earlier rather than

waiting to see if the weather changes, more people will be able to participate and enjoy all that the

parade has to offer, which will again include large helium balloons, beloved cartoon characters, and

numerous floats done by local organizations and businesses,” said Andrew Forrester, the City of

Madison Community Relations Director.

With the change, the parade lineup will open at 12 Noon, Main Street will close at 1:00pm, and

participants are expected to be in place by 1:30pm.

Santa Claus will continue plans to be at the cottage on Main Street on Saturday from 1-3pm, but will not

have any availability after the parade on Sunday.
