PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. – The 37th Annual Dumfries Christmas Holiday Parade will take place rain or shine.

The parade begins at noon in front of Town Hall on Main Street and will continue to the Dumfries Shopping Plaza. The theme for this year’s parade is “the sights and sounds of Christmas.”

In the Town of Haymarket in Western Prince William County, a holiday event planed for today became a casualty of the weather. A holiday festival that included a parade that was to start at 4 p.m., a tree lighting ceremony, a music stage, children’s activities, and Santa Claus, was canceled.

“Due to weather and resulting safety issues on Saturday, we have no choice to but to cancel the holiday party event,” according to the organizer, Haymarket Fun.

The event was originally billed as rain or shine, according to Haymarket Fun’s website.
