Main Street Laurens released the following statement:
“We have made the difficult decision to cancel the parade this evening. The National Weather service is calling for heavy rain through 7 p.m., so we have had to cancel. You can pick up a little more info on our Facebook page. … Please hold your announcements until 1 p.m., if possible.”
