Prattville: Mardi Gras parade changes

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

The City of Prattville says the chance of severe weather on Saturday afternoon is forcing some changes to the planned 8th annual Mardi Gras Parade. The changes will affect the time and route of the parade.  

"After an update on the weather, we have made the decision to move the parade from 3pm to 11am on Saturday," said Kellie Cook, Special Events Director.  "The heaviest and most severe weather is schedule to hit after lunch, so we are hoping we will still be able to have our parade. We are changing the route to help ensure we will get done before noon." 

Local vendors will begin selling beverages and food, at 10am at the Partners in Pediatrics parking lot, located next to Bank Trust in downtown Prattville.            

The parade route will be as follows: Begin at the Autauga County Courthouse, follow straight through downtown on Main Street, right on Northington Street, with the parade ending at Stanley Jensen Stadium.  

City officials say they will continue to monitor the weather closely and, if needed, will cancel the parade if severe weather is issued for the entire day.
