Halloween Lantern Parade postponed due to threat of ill weather

An ill-timed trick of nature that threatens rain and even light snow on Saturday has put a kink into the "Great Big Halloween Parade of Light & Luminaria," an annual tradition in Patterson Park.

"The parade is being rescheduled for Sunday, when it is supposed to be a little chilly, but clear," said Megan Hamilton, program director of the Creative Alliance at The Patterson, the organizer of the fanciful event. "We have had to change dates two or three times before and it always ended up being an amazing event."

The original times for the activities scheduled on Saturday will remain the same on Sunday: pre-parade "Harvest Hootenanny" festival from 3 to 6 p.m.; line up for parade at the Pulaski Monument on Eastern and Linwood Ave at 6:30 p.m.; parade at 7 p.m. All events are free.
