WARRENTON — The Warren County Christmas parade, which was scheduled to take place today, has been canceled due to the forecast of heavy rain in the afternoon and evening.

Warrenton Mayor Walter Gardner Jr. confirmed the cancellation.

The Prelude event featuring an appearance of Santa Claus, which traditionally takes place along with the parade, has been postponed, Gardner said.

“It will be rescheduled,” he said, “but the parade will not.”

At press time Friday night, the parade in nearby Grassy Creek at 2 p.m. today was still scheduled.
