Parade Route Change Hurts Downtown Findlay Businesses

10/23/17 – 5:29 P.M.

Some downtown business owners are discouraged at the decision to move the Findlay Halloween Parade out of downtown. The Courier reports that the parade brings many people into the local shops for warm beverages or snacks. Lynne Calvelage owns Coffee Amici and told the newspaper that it will be a loss for them. She said that that night makes them as much money in a few hours as in an entire day or so.

Calvelage added that the downtown construction is taking too long and is hurting downtown businesses. The Findlay Halloween Parade Committee decided to change the route last week to avoid the downtown area construction.
