SHAWNEE, Okla. – As winter weather moves into Oklahoma, city leaders in Shawnee have decided to postpone a Christmas parade that was originally scheduled for Thursday evening.
City officials say the wind chill will be a bigger factor than previously thought and sleet and slow could make driving hazardous.
Rather than cancel the parade, organizers decided to postpone the event.
The parade will now be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12.
In addition, the City of Kingfisher has also decided to postpone their “Hometown Christmas Parade.”
The parade was originally scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7 but has been moved to Saturday, Dec. 14 at 6 p.m.
