[ARCHIVED] Hometown Parade Cancelled/Tree Lighting Postponed to Monday/All other events going on as scheduled



The City of DeSoto and DeSoto Parks & Recreation are announcing the cancellation of DeSoto’s Hometown Holiday Parade and the postponement of the City’s Tree Lighting Ceremony scheduled for the evening of Saturday, December 10, 2022.  The City’s Tree Lighting Ceremony will be rescheduled to Monday, December 12, at 7 pm.  

The success of the DeSoto Eagles football team, who will be playing Denton Guyer in the 6A Division II Semifinals on Saturday, combined with anticipated rain in the forecast prompted City officials to cancel the parade and reschedule the Tree Lighting Ceremony.  

Indoor events planned as part of the City’s Hometown Holiday Celebration will be held as scheduled. These events will take place at the DeSoto Recreation Center and the DeSoto Library. 

We appreciate your understanding and patience.  Thank you for your attention to this announcement and Go Eagles!
