Fulton Street Fair postpones parade for incoming rain

June 21st, 2014 in News

The Fulton Street Fair has postponed the Grand Parade.

Originally scheduled for 5 p.m., the parade is expected to start at 6 p.m. Saturday. Dispatchers on emergency services radio announced it would be delayed one hour.

Doppler radar from the National Weather Service indicated heavy rain crossing the Callaway County line a little after 4 p.m. Saturday on an almost straight-east path.

In the event of severe weather, the Fulton Street Fair Committee has designated Fulton City Hall, the Callaway County Courthouse, First Christian Church and the Callaway County Library as places to seek shelter.

Lineup for the parade was to begin at 4 p.m. Saturday on the William Woods University campus then begin at 5 p.m. to travel south down Court Street and turn west at St. Louis Avenue (where the carnival is by First Baptist Church) then travel south on Nichols Street to end at Memorial Park.
