The Newport City Council unanimously approved the Kingdom Games Memphremagog Parade, to take place on the evening of July 28. It was the second time the council approved the parade. The decision cleared up confusion caused when city staff communicated to Kingdom Games director Phil White that his parade would not be permitted. That correspondence misrepresented the city council’s decision, which approved the Kingdom Games parade in a February vote. The other parades approved this year are the Memorial Day Parade on May 29; the NEK Pride Celebration on June 25; the Vt. State Firefighter Association Convention Parade on Aug. 6; and Light up the Night Parade on Dec. 2.
