The Pleasanton downtown holiday parade has been canceled, but the tree lighting will go on Saturday evening -- early, at 5 p.m. -- outside of the Museum on Main, city officials decided just after 3:30 p.m. due to the ongoing rain.

This marks the third time in four years that Pleasanton's holiday parade has been called off, following another inclement weather cancellation in 2019 and pandemic restrictions in 2020.
