Organizers Cancel the 2018 Miracles Christmas Parade in Lubbock Due to Snowstorm
The 14th annual Miracles Christmas Parade has been called off after a winter storm piled more than six inches of snow across Lubbock.
A statement from the Miracles Christmas Parade Chairman Jason Davis was released early Saturday morning on Facebook:
A great unknown each year of the Miracles Christmas Parade is the weather. We have been blessed with great parade weather every year of the parade except one- now, make that two! We are thankful for the moisture, but with 8 inches of snow, we have determined that it is not safe or logistically feasible and safe to put the Parade on this year and must cancel the Miracles Christmas Parade for 2018. We are disappointed, but want to sincerely thank all the volunteers that worked tirelessly to make the Parade happen. We want to thank our wonderful sponsors that generously contributed to bring this joyful event to West Texas, and we want to thank the many participants who worked hard to build and decorate their beautiful floats.
According to NWS Lubbock, more than nine inches had fallen at their Lubbock offices as of 9 a.m.
