Hatteras unparade called off

The Hatteras Village Unparade will not happen.

Sponsor officials with Hatteras Village Civic Association made the decision Thursday night, Dec. 3.

“We wanted to make sure we were making the right decisions to keep everyone safe. In light of that, unfortunately, we have decided to cancel the ‘Unparade,’” writes Karla Jarvis, president of the civic association.

“While we realize this was to be a ‘contactless’ event, some are still concerned about the uncertainties of what could happen and the rising numbers of infections we are seeing,” wrote Jarvis. “We still have about a week to go before the event and it’s better for everyone involved if we go ahead and make this decision before people invest more time and money.”

The civic association encourages folks to visit the village’s Sea Breeze Trail, off Eagle Pass Road. The nature trail is resplendently decorated with lights. “We invite you all to come walk with your family and enjoy this beautiful sight one evening in December or early January,” said Jarvis.

The Hatteras village Christmas parade is traditionally held annually on the second Saturday in December.

A dozen years ago, the formally attired, sequined divas called the Hatteras Island Dune Billy Queens rode in the Hatteras Village Christmas parade. The divas – Chris Ballance, Mary Ellon Ballance, Nichole Jennette and Kelly Nichols from Creative Ballance in Hatteras – seized the 2008 Most Comical float prize.
