Bethel Springs will not be holding its annual Christmas parade and celebration.

“This will be the first year we haven't done one,” Bethel Springs city manager Deborah Sullivan said. “In lieu of everything that is going on, I think maybe we need to be still until next year.”

Adamsville also opted to cancel Christmas in the Park this year.

“With COVID cases still on the rise, we feel like this is the best decision to keep our community safe,” Adamsville city manager Kara Hill said.
