The City of Marion’s Walk­way of Lights Parade will not take place this Sat­ur­day due to the spike in COVID-19 cases. 

May­or Jess Alum­baugh has been seek­ing advice from Grant Coun­ty Pub­lic Health Offi­cer, Dr. David Moore. The deci­sion was made today after fur­ther dis­cus­sions with Dr. Moore and the Grant Coun­ty Health Dept.

This is absolute­ly the last thing we want to hap­pen, but unfor­tu­nate­ly the num­bers are rapid­ly increas­ing. My main con­cern is the health of our com­mu­ni­ty and both Dr. Moore and I agree this is the safest thing to do.”

The City of Mar­i­on and Walk­way of Lights Com­mit­tee still encour­age folks to vis­it the Walk­way of Lights dis­play this sea­son. The dis­play will be lit at 6pm on Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 21st, and will con­tin­ue to be open from 6 – 10pm each evening until the end of the year.
