Jaycees say they can no longer run Fredericksburg Christmas parade
The Fredericksburg Jaycees won’t be organizing a Christmas parade this year.
City Manager Bev Cameron said he was notified this summer that the group can no longer organize the event.
But if you’re among the thousands of people who have enjoyed the parade for years, you can breathe a sigh of relief.
The event, held annually on the first Saturday of December, will carry on.
Cameron has assigned staff in the parks and recreation department to organize this year’s parade.
I’ll have more details later.
