Changes are in store for an annual event in Vincennes.

The Mayor’s office announced the city is creating a new plan for the downtown Christmas parade.

They say its for the safety of everyone involved.

This year the plan is to have parade participants set up their floats in an assigned area of Gregg Park.

Then the public will be able to drive through and enjoy the floats that way.

Officials will make this a two night event.

They expect to announce the dates sometime soon.

If you’re interested in participating, you’re encouraged to call the city hall.

The number is 812-882-7285.
