This just in from the City of Knoxville:
The Dogwood Arts Parade scheduled for 7 p.m., Friday has been postponed due to the threat of severe thunderstorms and possible damaging winds during the evening.
Officials with the Dogwood Arts Festival and the City of Knoxville made the decision after discussions on Friday afternoon.
“This is something we regret but the safety of the participants and the spectators was the most important consideration,” said Mickey Mallonee, the city’s director of special events.
The Dogwood Arts Parade has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, April 25.
The parade will now be the finale of the 48th Dogwood Arts Festival.
