Springfield Tree Lighting Ceremony will look different amid COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Downtown Springfield Christmas Parade and Mayor’s Tree Lighting Ceremony will look a little different this year.

Rather than a single afternoon event, the parade is going to be incorporated into a driving tour throughout the Festival of Lights season, which kicks off Saturday and runs through Dec. 31.

Area marching bands will perform on Park Central Square on Saturday and on Dec. 12.

Instead of the traditional tree-lighting show on the Square, Mayor Ken McClure will be on top of Vantage bar to wave his top hat to signal the lights Saturday evening. The ceremony will be televised on KY3 starting at 7 p.m. Saturday.

Parkview High School’s band will be in the Square to help with the countdown.
