Spirit of Giving Boombox Parade
Bullhead City AZ- It is with a heavy heart that the Colorado River Women’s Council (CRWC) is announcing the cancellation of our Boombox Parade held annually for the past 21 years on the first Friday in December. We have been working hard to find a way to have the Parade safely in light of the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020. We have had conversations with local health care official, Michael J Stenger, FACHE Chief Executive Officer of Western Arizona Regional Medical Center.
He indicated “The gathering of large groups of people is still not advised for the future health and safety of our community.” CRWC is also concerned about the additional cost and undue burden for businesses to build floats. In light of these reasons, CRWC has elected to take the advice of our local health official. We understand this is a staple of our community and didn’t come to this decision lightly. The parade sparks off the community’s holiday season, with the Winter Festival to follow for all to enjoy. We are working to be able to bring past parades to the community by means of TV2, Facebook, along with other potential avenues for all to enjoy.
We will continue to support our community with other events and programs, like Grant Assistance for Teachers and Educators (GATE), Protect our Kids Environments (POKE), Scholarships and local donations to non-profit organizations in need of assistance. We look forward to resuming the tradition and
bringing you the Boombox parade in December 2021.
