No Broadway Parking During Parade – No Pedestrians on Parade Route
In an effort to raise the spirits of our community, we are moving forward with plans for our 35th Annual Bradley Lighted Christmas Parade. Christmas Memories is the theme of the parade but it won’t be in the traditional way this year. The Village of Bradley has converted the traditional event to a DRIVE-THRU PARADE due to increased Covid positivity in our county. It is our hope that these changes will create a safer environment for all spectators, participants and parade volunteers.
The Village of Bradley encourages everyone to keep all Covid safety guidelines in mind including masks and social distancing.
Any questions, comments or suggestions you may have are most welcome when you email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Junior Parade Marshals
Payten Carstens as Miss Merry Christmas
