    Snowfall across Green Country caused enough problems in downtown Tulsa to cancel the parade for the first time in its 100 year history. Organizers said two-thirds of the participating floats backed out of the parade and the snow and wind were deemed unsafe for spectators.

    Potential parade goers still took part in the Veterans Day celebrations at the VFW Post 577 in midtown Tulsa. There was a breakfast, barbecue, special speakers, and more Veterans Day events.

    Despite the snow, a few dozen veterans, 50 jeeps with Jeepers Anonymous, and several other floats decided to march the parade route anyway.

    The Veterans Day Parade in Claremore is also canceled due to the weather. A free lunch for veterans and their families will take place at 12 p.m. Monday at the Claremore American Legion.
