It does not matter if the parade is hosted near Thanksgiving or not. It has always been the Christmas parade and should always stay that way. This should not even be a situation that we are having to discuss, it should be a time for the community to come together and celebrate.

Downtown Wilson is trying to attract more people to the area and if the parade is named the “Holiday Parade,” many will not be attending.
