December 6, 2018 CVB News — Special Alert

CVBnews — Special Alert
It is with great sadness that the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce has announced the cancellation of the Light The Night Christmas Parade in Fredericksburg this coming Friday (December 7, 2018).  With the increasing likelihood of electrical storms and high winds in the area on Friday night, the safety of the parade participants and parade attendees is the primary concern.  The parade will be held again in 2019.

For other alternate weekend activities for local residents and visitors to Fredericksburg, see http://www.visitfredericksburgtx.com/plan/events/

Our office will be closed November 22, Thanksgiving Day.
