Wadena's "Grand Parade" was canceled shortly after 7:30 p.m. Thursday night when threatening weather moved into the area. Law enforcement advised parade watchers, many of whom were already soaked from a brief downpour, to leave the parade area and head home.


While the parade was shortened, visitors were able to see a number of floats and the Bertha-Hewitt marching band pass by.
