Lincoln City parade

A Lincoln City parade to salute frontline workers and raise money for charity has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Multiple businesses and the public were invited to participate in Lincoln City Community Days’ Happiness parade –billed as “Happiness Is”– which was scheduled for Sept. 18. The purpose of the parade was to salute frontline workers and celebrate North Lincoln County “supporters, workers, business owners, survivors, and care givers.” The $50 registration for being in the parade was to fund Angels Anonymous, a group that helps people with rent, power bills and other needs.

“It really hurts,” Event coordinator Sandy Gruber said. “The Covid-19 case rates and the mask outdoors mandate really made it impossible to have a parade where ‘happiness’ was to be the focus.”

The Lincoln City Community Days Facebook page put out a cancellation notice Friday morning:

After much discussion about Covid-19 numbers and having an outdoor mask mandate, we have made the incredibly hard, but right decision to CANCEL the parade scheduled for Sept 18th.

Event organizers said it was unknown if another parade would be planned for a future date.

  1. Either of us wear masks in stores either. No one says a word. Just doing our best to save our great COUNTRY from these evil people.

  2. The State fair is going on, or whatever fair I’m seeing ads for on tv.
    Normal life has been cancelled, and we are all in a bad way until
    the end of time. Someone in charge needs to get a grip, this virus is
    not going to go away, and I know there are a lot of persons that think
    this “new normal” is just fine, but it’s not fine, anyone that thinks I’m
    wearing a mask outdoors has some bad news coming, besides the reality
    that we shop less now in person. I’m not going to participate in the endless
    mask wearing.
