The Terrell Chamber of Commerce on Monday announced the first-ever cancellation of the Stanley Ballard Sr. Christmas Parade.

“The decision to cancel the parade -- a longstanding Christmas tradition in Terrell -- was a difficult one,” said Carlton Tidwell, president & CEO Terrell Chamber of Commerce/CVB. “2020 has been a difficult year and we’ve had to make the most difficult decisions in our history as a Chamber. But with the rise in COVID cases in Kaufman County, we feel cancelling the parade is the best decision to keep our citizens safe and to do our part to prevent the spread.”

The Chamber remains optimistic and looks forward to resuming our annual events in 2021. To stay informed of event dates and other community happenings, visit or follow the Terrell Chamber of Commerce Facebook page.
