From the Opelika Chamber of Commerce:
The Opelika Christmas parade will be cancelled due to the possibility of thunderstorms, hail, heavy rain, limited visibility and 60 mph winds. After meeting with public safety officials, we feel this is the safest option for everyone involved. The parade will not be rescheduled for this year due to calendar conflicts. We want to be respectful of all the other events scheduled and encourage you to attend and support them.
