While rain may have led to Christmas parades being postponed last weekend, it is ice and snow that is causing multiple cities to adjust the dates for their parades over the next few days.
This morning, Cookeville-Putnam County announced that their Christmas Parade would be postponed until Tuesday, December 11. The parade is now set to begin at 7 p.m.
Parade Chairman, Randy Porter, said, “The decision to postpone the parade was one that was not made lightly. There are many moving parts to an event of this size, and our committee took many things into consideration. Our main concern is the safety of participants, spectators, and all involved. We look forward to another successful parade on Tuesday, and invite everyone to join us.”
In addition, the Leiper's Fork Christmas Parade has also been moved from tomorrow, Saturday, December 8, to the following Saturday, December 15.
The parade will begin at 2 p.m. and John Schneider will still be acting as Grand Marshal. JJ Jones “the human snowglobe” will be performing at the Leipers Creek Gallery starting at 2:00 p.m. as well.
It has also been reported that Kid Rock will be making an appearance and will participate in the parade next Saturday.
