Douglas Co. cancels all in-person holiday events due to COVID-19

Douglas County has canceled all in-person holiday events in the county, including celebrations in Gardnerville and Minden – and the 25th annual Parade of Lights hosted by the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce. The difficult decision comes out of what county manager Patrick Cates called a “necessity” in the fight against the pandemic. Hospitalizations are increasing and the latest public health guidelines call for gatherings of no more than 50 persons. As an alternative, consider the Carson valley Chamber’s holiday decorating contest.
