Washington, Mo. holiday parade rescheduled due to rain

WASHINGTON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The Holiday Parade of Lights in Washington has been rescheduled for December 5.

The parade is normally held in downtown Washington on the day after Thanksgiving. However, because of the forecast calls for rain on Friday, a decision was made to postpone the parade and hold it in on December 5.

“There is a 100 percent chance of rain for Friday, basically a wall of water, so we feel it would be best,” said parade organizer Bridgette Epple said. 

Three high school marching bands backed out of the parade Wednesday because of the forecast.
