Beloit tightens security for holiday parade

Security is expected to be increased for the Beloit Holiday Parade.  City officials hope plans already in place for a “reverse” parade ease spectators concerns after the tragic events in Waukesha Sunday.  Director of Strategic Communications Sarah Lock says the the pandemic actually prompted the decision long before a motorist drove down the parade route in Waukesha killing several and injuring dozens more.  Lock says a “reverse” parade has spectators driving past the stationary floats.  The event is planned for Friday night from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. beginning on 4th Street by the YMCA parking lot.
