I’m disappointed and very saddened about the Holiday Caravan Board’s announcement to discontinue the Holiday Caravan Parade. Please know that Salisbury’s City Council never made a decision to take over the Holiday Caravan Parade or felt pressured to do so. As a local government entity, our priority is to create welcoming and inclusive environments for all. It is my hope we all work together, as a community, and move forward with a renewed commitment to continue this great tradition for the entire Rowan community. My deepest thanks to the Holiday Caravan Board for your dedicated work over the years!
