The wind tore through downtown Waynesboro today, leaving few holiday decorations still in place. It's because of these high winds that the city had to delay setting up for the annual Christmas parade.
We're not worried about anything blowing away-it's more just a matter of waiting for the wind to die down. We've been lucky in years past where we could set up a couple days ahead of time- this year's gonna be a little more pressed where were gonna have to set up the morning of.
The main stage has yet to be constructed, which will sit here in the Invista parking lot. Hunter says that waiting until tomorrow to set everything up was a matter of safety for his crew and the community.
With the wind and the weather setting up some of the cones and barrels and whatnot, we usually don't put those out until Saturday, but there is a chance they could blow around and hurt someone or a vehicle.
Officials here are hoping that they can get the work done tomorrow so that this year’s parade can be as big, if not bigger, than last year’s.
We're expecting a big turnout again, with all the participants in the parade; it should be a good event again.
