Longview 150 Parade: The Grand Sesquicentennial Trek Canceled

Canceled White Letters

Reading Time: <1 Minute

Due to the ongoing fight against COVID-19 in our community the Longview 150 Parade has been officially canceled. The parade was originally scheduled for April 18, 2020, but was rescheduled for fall 2020, but again changed to April 17, 2021. 

All parade participants will be contacted about a refund of their registration fees. The logistics of a parade are very challenging in light of the guidelines to minimize the spread of COVID-19. While the number of COVID-19 cases in our community appears to be on the decline, it is still a real threat and makes having a parade very difficult.

There are still opportunities available to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Longview – One Hundred Acres of Heritage and Longview Main Street are selling both commemorative street banners and a limited edition 150th screen print by local artist, Jason Butler. 

For information about these items or other happenings in Downtown Longview, please contact Melida Heien, Main Street Coordinator at 903-331-1469 or by email.

The One Hundred Acres of Heritage, Inc. is a 501(c)(3)not for profit organization that works with the City of Longview’s Main Street program to promote growth and vibrancy in Downtown Longview.
