Bah Humbug! City's Saturday night Christmas festivities cancelled

Forecast of inclement weather forces decision

Thanks Mother Nature.
The forecast of rain and inclement weather has forced the cancellation of Saturday’s night’s Christmas events including the parade, tree lighting and fireworks.
According to an emailed press release from the City of Burleson, the fireworks would not be able to be set off with the projected wind speeds so the show will be moved to Fourth of July.
The parade will not be rescheduled due to conflicts with other events over the next couple of weekends.
The email said the decision wasn’t made lightly but the feeling is in the best interest of participants, staff and vendors.
Santa’s Breakfast at The Burleson Recreation Center and Thinking Outside the Christmas Box at the Burleson Public Library will still be taking place. There are great holiday events scheduled for the rest of the month,
