JOPLIN, Mo. —
The Joplin Christmas parade has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 17, the Joplin Jaycees announced Thursday morning.
“We understand there are other events that night, but that was the night we had the largest number of entries that could be there,” organizers said in a statement on their Facebook page.
The parade had originally been scheduled for Dec. 10, but organizers canceled it that day because of overnight snowfall that they said made for unsafe road and sidewalk conditions.
The Joplin Globe will have more details as they are announced.
