TAUNTON, Mass. (AP) — Rain is putting a damper on Christmas cheer in Massachusetts.

The city of Taunton’s annual Christmas parade scheduled for Sunday afternoon was canceled due to the weather.

Mayor Thomas Hoye Jr.’s office said Saturday that many bands and performers said they would be unable to perform in the rainy conditions.

His office says the city is unable to reschedule the parade “due to the enormity of the event.”

The theme of this year’s parade was “It’s A Wonderful Life.”
