Christmas time in Baldwin

As the saying goes, don’t rain on my parade. That’s what organizers of the fifth-annual holiday lights parade had to contend with Sunday as Baldwin City was soaked by a day-long rain that brought about an inch of precipitation. With the whole point of the parade being about lights — and the electricity to make them shine — it was decided being out in the rain might not be the best thing. So, the parade was postponed around 2 p.m. Sunday. It was rescheduled for this Sunday at 6 p.m. “It was just impossible to mix electricity with water,” said Sandy Cardens of the Baldwin City Chamber of Commerce. “It was a safety issue. “When you have to postpone something like that at the last minute, it causes problems,” said Cardens. “It was hard to get Santa Claus rescheduled because he’s so busy this time of year. But, he agreed readily because he didn’t want to be out in the rain, either.” While apologizing for the inconvenience, Cardens also made a good point about the parade being rescheduled a week later. “We’re sorry if people came down in the rain and found out it wasn’t going on,” she said. “But, this Sunday is supposed to be 56 degrees. It will be wonderful.”
