PINEVILLE, La. (City of Pineville) - Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Pineville has canceled the annual Pineville Christmas Parade due to COVID-19.

The Pineville Christmas Parade was tentatively scheduled for December 11. Pineville City Hall traditions such as tours of our Gingerbread house and Santa House are also canceled for the 2020 holiday season.

With COVID-19 on the rise, the City of Pineville wants our citizens and employees to stay safe, and we feel this is best option for our community.

We recommend that you look at the CDC guidelines for holidays, specifically their recommendations for Thanksgiving and Christmas which can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html
