Just around 9 p.m., the time the Grapevine Parade of Lights was supposed to start Dec. 5, bridges and overpasses in North Texas were freezing up from the first wave of sleet and freezing rain the ice storm brought.
Just hours before that, event organizers finally canceled. Some floats were already on site being prepared by their creators, who thought it was still going to happen.
Monday night, it finally did happen. Rescheduling was no easy feat, but those who attended the rescheduled event were all smiles.
More than 100 parade entries enchanted children and adults alike.
Shannon Brewer's daughter was on a homemade float.
"We stayed up ‘til like, one in the morning for the float, so when we didn't get to be in it and we thought it was canceled it was sad," said Brewer. "It's something we come to every year."
"It took a little challenge, took a little coordinating, but I think everyone was able to pull it together and everyone was determined to find a date that would work so we could still do it," said Barry Lewis with the City of Grapevine.
Despite the change, groups were still able to make it.
