Two cities have decided to reschedule their Christmas parades in response to a less-than-ideal weather forecast.
With predictions of rain in the Fort Payne area, the Chamber of Commerce there has announced the city's Christmas parade will take place 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 13. It was initially scheduled for Friday.
Scottsboro officials have also announced their parade, originally scheduled for Saturday, will now take place Tuesday, Dec. 14. Lineup is set for 4:30 p.m., with the parade beginning at 6 p.m.
Jingle Bell Square in Scottsboro has been postponed as well. That event will now be 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12.
