After 60-plus years, no Christmas parade in Springfield


SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) – Springfield’s Christmas won’t include a parade.

The event, known as “The Oldest and Coldest Christmas Parade in Oregon,” has been kicking off the city’s Christmas season for nearly 65 years. But organizer Marilee Woodrow tells The Register-Guard there will be no parade this December, and it’s because of a lack of volunteers.

Woodrow says potential volunteers started to call when they learned of the cancellation, but it’s too late.

She hopes the parade can make a grand return in 2018.
