The second annual Parade of Lights was supposed to go on this evening in Historic Downtown Cochrane but organizers made the call to cancel the event due to a lack of volunteers.

Organizer Stephanie Shelstad says they have had a lot of residents express interest in helping out with next year's parade and is hopeful that they'll have the volunteers they need moving forward.

Shelstad says "With cancelling the parade we've actually had a lot of people step up and say they want to be involved next year. Hopefully, we can get some new blood on board and plan an even bigger and better event."

Shelstad says they're always looking for new volunteers and will have more information on their events available in the new year.

"We revamped our website but in the new year we will have information on facebook when we have our AGM and can let people know how to get involved."
