Due to the severe temperatures expected Friday, Dec. 6th, Wausau Events, Inc. has made the decision to cancel the Holiday Parade for 2013.

Organizers say it is in the best interest of both spectators and participants to cancel the parade’s outdoor activities.

The Warming Party will still take place at the Great Hall (next to the Grand Theater) where the Wausau Symphony Band will perform, and children can visit with Santa.

Free cookies, candy, and hot chocolate will be offered. Doors open at 6:00pm. The holiday tree lighting on The 400 Block will occur at 6:30pm.

At this time, we do not have plans to reschedule the parade portion of Friday’s Holiday Parade activities.

NewsChannel 7 will be collecting non-perishable food items and monetary donations at the warming party to kickoff our annual food drive, Share Your Holidays.
