Rutherfordton Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony has been canceled

The Rutherfordton Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony has been canceled due to weather. However, many great things will still be going on downtown, and we will still light the tree! Read below for the full updated schedule.

Even though it is going to rain out our parade, there’s no way we will let that cancel our holiday spirit this Saturday! We have lots of free indoor activities planned that will fill your heart with holiday cheer while also keeping you warm and dry. Come join us!
