The East Los Angeles Christmas parade has been canceled because organizers could not scrape together the funds needed to put on the event.It was scheduled for this Sunday but the Whittier Boulevard Merchants Association couldn't afford to pay for the sheriff's deputies needed to patrol it.

The Merchant's Association has organized the parade since 1974. This is only the second time in the event's history that it has been canceled.
