Police worry about possibility of flooding downtown

SAN ANTONIO – The 37th Annual Dieciseis de Septiembre Parade scheduled for Saturday morning downtown has been canceled due to inclement weather, the Avenida Guadalupe Neighborhood Association said.

Parade organizers were informed by San Antonio police that if flooding were to occur, they would need to pull officers away from the parade to handle public safety incidents, a news release said.

Association officials said Market Square festivities have been relocated to a staging area underneath Interstate 35 for El Grito.
