With an abundance of caution, in the interest of public safety and in consultation with the Office of Emergency Management, the McKinney Rotary Club regrets to announce the cancelation of the 2015 Christmas Parade of Lights. The National Weather Service is following a storm system that is likely to produce heavy rain and has the potential for severe thunderstorms. This weather event is expected to produce between 1 and 3 inches of rain. While there are still many unknowns with this system, the NWS is still predicting rain and thunderstorms Saturday in the afternoon hours through early evening. The heaviest rain is expected east of I-35.

The McKinney Rotary Club is taking this action now so that you can plan accordingly.
