LYONS, Kan. (AP) -- The traditional Veterans Day parade won't happen this year in Lyons.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/19igusr ) the parade scheduled for Nov. 9 was canceled because of a lack of participation or people to coordinate the event.

The parade was held in the central Kansas town for years, and was once even covered live by a radio station. After a few years off, the parade was revived in 2000 and had been held on the Saturday before Nov. 11.

Organizers say the military presence in the parade had diminished and fewer spectators attended the event in recent years. They hope to organize an indoor event to mark the day next year.
