ROGERS CITY, Mich.— Disappointing news for those who wanted to go to the Christmas Parade. The Rogers City Downtown Development Authority decided to cancel the parade citing a recent spike in COVID–19 numbers.
Rogers City Mayor Scott Mclennan said, “Northeast Michigan is facing new positive COVID–19 cases.” The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is reporting 55 cases in Presque Isle County.
The DDA is considering hosting a smaller event to take the place of the annual parade. The DDA plans to host the Christmas Parade next year.
