OSKALOOSA, Iowa (KYOU) -Following Governor Kim Reynolds’ new mandate for the state of Iowa some changes are being made to Oskaloosa’s holiday festivities including their annual town square lighting ceremony and holiday parade.

Amid the rise in Covid-19 cases, Oskaloosa Main Street has announced some changes to their holiday schedule.

On Saturday, November 21st what would normally be a family fun event will come with a few changes. Instead, the Painting with Lights event will be only accessible if viewing from a vehicle or via Livestream on Oskaloosa Main Street’s Facebook page.

The lights will be on from 4:30-11:00 pm every night through January 10, 2021.

The Reverse Lighted Christmas Parade set for December 5th will also be seeing some changes.

Spectators may drive through the Display to view floats and backdrop of Painting with Lights.

Viewers must remain in their vehicles and are strongly encouraged to ride with only members of their own household.

There will be no food vendors, no handing out of candy or other items, and no gathering. Floats are limited to two people at any time, physically distanced and masked.
