Hampton Cancels Christmas Parade

HAMPTON-Coliseum Central recently announced it plans to cancel its upcoming 2021 Holiday Parade due in part to the covid-19 pandemic.

In lieu of a parade, Coliseum Central will host an enhanced version of its Holiday Extravaganza, which will return November 20-December 20.

Activities as part of the Coliseum Central Holiday Extravaganza will include smaller in-person events such as drive-in movies as well as virtual events that include family activities, music, and other entertainment as well as holiday television specials.

One new highlight for 2021 will be the transformation of Bluebird Gap Farm into a winter wonderland on November 20 and 21. This event will feature large-scale character balloon displays, music, photo opportunities, and more.
