LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Weather is cause for concern for Saturday's Christmas parade in downtown Lafayette.

Greater Lafayette Commerce says public safety officials will cancel it only for extreme weather like thunder and lightning.

An announcement will be made at 11 a.m. Saturday whether or not the parade will go on.

It runs from 5:30 p.m to 8 p.m. and anybody is welcome to watch and enjoy the floats and walkers in the parade.

GLC says safety trumps tradition in the case of this parade.

"We all want the parade to happen," said Kelli Cornelius. "It's a great time for downtown Lafayette, but with public safety as a top concern."

GLC says this parade is oldest one in Indiana.

This year it's called a very merry Main Street.
