Soledad Chamber restructures event as drive-thru parade

SOLEDAD — Soledad Chamber of Commerce hosted the 35th Annual Soledad Christmas Celebration on Dec. 5, which was restructured as a drive-thru parade this year due to Covid-19 health restrictions.

Vehicles with lights traveled through town to bring in the festive mood on a Saturday evening. The chamber extended the route from a half mile to three miles this year, and attendees were asked to wear masks and maintain social distancing.

The celebration took place nearly two weeks before the town’s second parade on Friday, Dec. 18, which will be hosted by the online group Front Street.
