St. Pete's holiday parade will go on despite weather; other cities postpone theirs

ST. PETERSBURG

Weather disrupts holiday parades

Santa Claus will brave the elements in St. Petersburg Saturday, but with the strong chance that heavy rain would melt the "snow,'' several holiday events have been postponed this weekend.

• The Lions Club Santa Parade will kick off 10 a.m. Saturday at Central Avenue and Fifth Street traveling east to Bayshore Drive in St. Petersburg. Snowfest will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Straub Park.

• The second annual "Miracle on Cleveland Street" in downtown Clearwater, with 40 tons of snow for children to frolic in, is postponed until the following Friday. Clearwater's holiday lighting ceremony in Station Square Park is postponed as well.

• Oldsmar's "Christmas Wonderland," in which children can slide down slopes of ice at R.E. Olds Park, is postponed until the following Friday.

• St. Petersburg's Carter G. Woodson African-American History Museum Christmas Tree Lighting has been postponed from Friday. It will now take place from 5-7:30 p.m. Sunday.

• Dunedin's "Old Fashioned Christmas," where machines sprinkle snow flakes onto the Pinellas Trail, is postponed until Dec. 12.
