LEWISVILLE, N.C. — The Lewisville Civic Club has announced that it is postponing the town’s annual Christmas parade for a week because of a threat of wintry weather Sunday morning, and Kernersville officials say they will make a decision on the town’s parade early Sunday.
The Lewisville parade had been scheduled at 3 p.m. on Sunday. The Kernersville parade is set for 2:30-4:30 p.m. on Sunday.
The National Weather Service office in Raleigh said that rain would be widespread over the area Saturday and would continue into early Sunday, with a chance that freezing rain could develop because temperatures will be hovering near freezing. Forecasters said there is the possibility that a light glaze of ice could form on elevated surfaces.
Officials with the Kernersville Chamber of Commerce said that a decision will be made at 8 a.m. Sunday. If the forecast for noon is 39 degrees or colder and rain, the parade will be cancelled. The chamber of commerce will post the decision on its website, kernersvillenc.com. There is no rain date.
The Lewisville parade will be held Sunday, Dec. 15, at 3 p.m.
