“Out of concern for our local community, businesses and tourists we sadly will not be holding the Robe Christmas Parade in 2020.  The decision to cancel was a tough but necessary decision and there is comfort knowing that our community is not being put in harm’s way, for an outbreak would be a burden we could not bear. Take care of yourselves and we will be back for 2021.” Thank you, Tracey (Christmas Parade Director)

In order to maintain and encourage the Christmas Spirit for this year, Council will be coordinating some alternative Christmas options to keep the festive cheer alive in Robe. Details to be released in November. Watch this space!

Unfortunately, due to the associated risks and uncertainty related to COVID-19, Council have made the tough decision at the October meeting to cancel the New Year’s Eve Fireworks display in Robe this year. The priority being the health and safety of our community, the possible economic risks as well as the inability to host a COVID Safe event were all factors which lead to this decision. Council understand the disappointment this cancellation will cause, however they look forward to bringing back the New Year’s Eve Fireworks display in Robe next year (2021/2022).
