The Redwood Village Shopping Center invites you to participate in the Al Gray Electric Lighted Parade to be held in Fortuna on Friday, December 11, 2020! Any floats, tractors, trucks, bikes, or scooters that are decked out for the holidays are welcome to join in on the fun. All parade entries must be mobile, lighted, and not more than 12 feet high and 10 feet wide.
Those on your float must be from within the same family or workplace in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Participants MUST wear a mask so that our parade stays in compliance with county event guidelines. Participants will be required to stay on their own floats in order to avoid cross-contamination. All participants are asked to do a self-screen of their health on the day of the parade and to stay home if they are sick or not feeling well.
