BURLINGTON, ON

 

The notice was brief, to the point and for some really disappointing.

The weather was foul and there were not going to be that many people lining New Street waiting for the floats to pass by.
The city posted a notice:

It is with great disappointment that the Santa Claus Parade is cancelled due to the declaration of a weather event and unsafe weather conditions. Public safety is our #1 priority. Unfortunately the parade cannot be rescheduled due to the massive amount of scheduling to coordinate 90 floats and road closures. We encourage all residents to please avoid any unnecessary travel until weather conditions improve.

No mention of any refunds for those people who paid healthy fees to participate in the parade.

The Salvation Army is there for the good times and during the hard times. The parade was one of the Good Times.
