Columbus Indiana Festival of Lights Parade
08/30/2020

Columbus Indiana Festival of Lights Parade

After careful consultation with a sampling of stakeholders regarding the health and safety of everyone – our sponsors, volunteers, participants, and our spectators – we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Festival of Lights Parade, scheduled for December 5, 2020 in downtown Columbus, Indiana.
We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19, and after much consideration, we have made the conclusion that the number of people involved in all aspects of the parade and the thousands of people from around the region that attend the event is too significant to risk being the source of a superspreader event.
While the event is still 90+ days out from time of cancellation, we feel a responsibility to our sponsors who fund the event and the groups who enter floats who often begin to design, buy supplies and build their entries beginning as early as Labor Day. We do not want them to work so hard and spend the funds to create a float that will never be seen. In addition, the time and effort it takes to create the floats that are seen in the parade take hundreds of hours to create. We do not want to put any groups in danger of possibly becoming a cluster of cases.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, not only to the entrants, sponsors and spectators who look forward to attending the parade, but also to the downtown business community that hold their own special events for that Saturday.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly, and the forecasted long-term public health concerns have caused us to make this decision at this time.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to celebrating the holidays with you and your families, in 2021.

Columbus Area Arts Council

Graphic designer, Brooke Hawkins, talks about her design for The Mask Project: “This pattern repeats the phrase "A Note to my Future Self" in abstract type. Throughout COVID I have spent a lot of time thinking about the future and what it may bring. The phrase represents my desire to see into the future to inform decisions I make today. The design feels old and new to me. The playful dots are almost encryption-like while the stripes feel sun-faded and dusty.”

“I wear a mask because it is a symbol of respect and mutual understanding. It is a visual cue to others that I'm being safe and limiting my exposure.”
@broohaw

Thanks to @heritagefundbc, @columbusregionalhealth and @healthy.communities Proyecto Salud Action Team for their support in making these FREE masks available to the community!
