UPDATE: Due to the pending storm, Saturday's "Electric Light Parade and Noel at Niagara" illumination has been canceled.
Supervisor Lee Wallace issued the following statement: "Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control and with the possibility of a major weather event in our area and the surrounding communities, we have no choice but to cancel this year’s 'Noel at Niagara' parade and lighting event. I want to sincerely thank you all for your hard work and dedication to this event. With no possibility of a make-up date, my hope is that next year’s event will be bigger and better."
