“We know planning events during this pandemic has been challenging at every turn, and while we’re disappointed we won’t be able to present the community with a parade, we’re happy we have other options to share the spirit of the season with Dayton, like the televised Grande Illumination and Holiday Lights on Main.” Gudorf said. “We do want to remind our community that even though some of our normal festivities are different this year, one thing remains constant — our small businesses need our support more than ever. Please be sure to patronize those businesses in a safe and responsible manner any way you can this year.”
