The Monticello Chamber is canceling their Santa visits this year.
The Chamber announced their decision Wednesday. They say there were many factors taking into account, including the health and safety of the Monticello community and the ability to put on a successful event with the current restrictions due to COVID-19.
The Chamber hopes that every Monticello resident can safely celebrate the holiday while observing Iowa Department of Public Health guidelines.
The Monticello Chamber says they also look forward to coming together as a community and celebrating their member businesses through the Chamber’s #ShopLocal #ShopSmall promotions and Chamber Bucks gift certificates.
