Parade postponed one week due to weather

Sunday, November 25, 2007

The Parade of Lights will not be held this afternoon because of the weather, the Cape Girardeau Police Department announced.

The parade, organized by Old Town Cape, is the traditional kick off of the Christmas shopping season in downtown Cape Girardeau. The parade had been scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.

The weather generated "an awful lot of calls," patrolman David Gilbertson, station commander for Sunday, said. "They are just asking if it has been cancelled. To my knowledge, it has been rescheduled for next week on Sunday."

Marla Mills, executive director of Old Town Cape, confirmed that the parade will take place next Sunday with a 5 p.m. starting time.
