SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Bay Parade of Lights scheduled for Dec. 11 is now canceled due to a weather advisory, said the event coordinator in a press release Saturday.

The Coast Guard called off the event due to a winter storm that’s set to roll into the area on Sunday. Officials say high wind speeds are projected, which could make the parade dangerous for boating participants. 

The event coordinator said safety for those watching and participating in the San Diego Bay Parade of Lights is the priority. However, the Dec. 18 event will still take place as scheduled.
