Newellton Community, Tensas Parish, all neighboring parishes, and out of state spectators

The Newellton Easter Parade Committee reconvened on March 16, 2020, to discuss and make a final decision regarding the 2020 Annual Easter Parade. We regret to inform our many spectators near and far that in response to the Coronavirus 2019, and the declaration set forth by Governor John Bel Edwards, the committee felt that the parade should be officially canceled. Our first priority is and always will be the safety and health of the community.

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this decision may cause. We are looking forward to your continued prayers and support in 2021!

Yours in Christ,
