Elkton's Christmas parade has been postponed by the winter storm.
Mayor Nancy Camp says instead of Friday night, the Elkton Christmas parade will be at 6 p.m. Saturday, December 14. It will follow the same route as planned. Other scheduled Christmas in Elkton activities will also be held December 14.
The Trenton and Guthrie Christmas parades have been canceled.
Residents of the southern Pennyrile have been taking the winter storm warning seriously and area grocery stores are busy.
Elkton Food Giant manager Brent Spurlin says business started to pick up Wednesday, but he expected it to get busier as the storm approached.
Spurlin says milk and bread are always the popular winter storm items, but anything that can be eaten without being cooked goes quickly.
He says hamburger meat and other items that can be grilled in the case of a power outage have also been popular.
