The annual Rayne Christmas Parade has been canceled.

"Due to the state remaining in a somewhat semi-Phase 3 of the governor's mandate, I'm sorry to say that our city will not enjoy our annual Christmas parade this year," said Mayor Charles "Chuck" Robichaux.

The parade was scheduled to roll down the streets of Rayne on December 1, 2020. Mayor Robichaux says that city officials are working a safe, COVID-friendly event.

The event is still in the planning stages and more details will be released when finalized.
