The Christmas tradition of the parade had been canceled for the second year in a row. But the owner of a local business, Al Eby, made a wish list for Christmas when he learned that the Festival of Lights parade was canceled again.

He works with Visit Woodland, which has rallied a group of entrepreneurs and hoteliers. They didn’t want to back down on the holiday tradition that has been canceled since COVID. Several fire departments will also be joining the party which will take place on December 10 instead of the typical first weekend in December.
