Pleasanton city officials opted to cancel Hometown Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony because of inclement weather on Saturday.
Rainy and windy conditions passed through Pleasanton off and on for most of the afternoon and evening on Saturday, and the decision was made to call off this year’s holiday festivities around 2:30 p.m.
Officials said going into the weekend that the annual parade would not be rescheduled in the event of a weather cancellation.
“It is with great sadness that we inform you that the Hometown Holiday Celebration has been CANCELED. We wish we could continue on with the parade as planned, but the heavy rains and high winds aren’t predicted to subside today and we have to put safety first,” city officials posted on the Pleasanton Library and Recreation Department’s Twitter account Saturday afternoon.
