Wind, rain and cold prompted officials to call off the Christmas in the Village parade Saturday, Nov. 30. The Zionsville Chamber of Commerce posted the announcement on Facebook.
“Unfortunately, it appears the forecast is going to get progressively nastier throughout the day, and as such we have decided to cancel the parade,” the announcement read. “This includes all parade volunteers, participants, and scheduled entertainers and vendors. We’re so sorry the weather turned out this way!”
Some of the planned activities took place anyway. Santa held special hours at the Santa House instead of riding in the parade.
While the weather stopped many of Saturday’s activities, Christmas in the Village will continue the rest of the month with a special Ladies Night Out on Dec. 12, a Snowflake Seek and Find on Dec. 14 and a Christmas Crawl on Dec. 19. Visit the website at ZionsvilleChamber.org for more information.
