Fredericksburg, Virginia is already making plans for how to safely hold its annual Christmas parade during the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead of the usual format, the Spotsylvania County city will host a “reverse parade,” with stationary floats and spectators who drive by, the Free Lance-Star reported Monday.

The set-up will be similar to a drive-through holiday lights display and will allow for spacing between parade entrants.

The theme is “Light up the Season," and registration for float entrants starts this week.
