GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Event organizers say an annual fundraiser scheduled for Friday night for Toys for Tots has been canceled.

The annual fundraiser features Parade of Lights floats from GJ Pipe and others and was supposed to go from 6 - 8 p.m. Friday night to help gather toys for Toys for tots.

Unfortunately, organizers say they've had to cancel the event because the floats can't get into the parking lot in front of KMart on North Avenue. This week's heavy snow and the huge mountains of snow left after the lot was plowed have made it so the huge floats can't pull into the lot.

Toys for Tots organizers say that even though they've had to cancel the event they still need lots of toy donations to make this a merry Christmas for less fortunate kids around the Valley.
