Longview Christmas parade rescheduled for Tuesday

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The Longview Christmas parade has been rescheduled for next Tuesday due to possible rainy conditions.

Organizers of the Longview AMBUCS Christmas parade met Thursday morning to discuss how expected rainy conditions could impact the annual event.

It was determined during the meeting that the best course of action was to reschedule the parade for Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

Rain chances will be increasing through the afternoon and evening.

Weather-permitting, the parade is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the corner of Whaley and Green streets, passing by the Gregg County Courthouse, before winding back on Methvin Street and ending at Third Street.

Due to the threat of inclement weather, the Longview AMBUCS Christmas Parade will be rescheduled for Tuesday, 12/11 at 6:30.
