Hangtown Christmas Parade cancelled

By From page A6 | December 05, 2012

Placerville Police Department determined that it was unsafe to allow the Hangtown Christmas Parade to continue. There were several determining factors in making this decision, one of which was the weather. The storm drains were being overwhelmed by all the rain fall and there is an extreme amount of pooling water around storm drains throughout the city.

Placerville Police Department is reminding citizens to use caution when driving through the pooled water. The water levels can be deceptive, causing cars to stall in the rising water.

The parade will not be rescheduled.
