The cities of Sherwood and Jacksonville both canceled their Christmas parades which were slated for Saturday due to the inclement weather. But each city has responded in different ways to Old Man Winter.
The city of Jacksonville has reset its parade for Saturday at 1 p.m.
The city of Sherwood has opted to do away with a 2013 Christmas parade all together.
“We regret to inform you that we’ve made a decision to cancel tomorrow’s Christmas parade because of the weather and do not plan to reschedule,” said Marcia Cook, executive director of the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce. “Although we realize that many people will be disappointed, our main concern is for everyone’s safety. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.”
