Cantore snowed in; Horn tapped to lead Neptune parade

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

When does an East Coast snowstorm impact South Mississippi? When that storm traps the Weather Channel's Jim Cantore in Boston.

Cantore was tapped to be grand marshal of the Krewe of Neptune's Saturday night Mardi Gras parade in downtown Biloxi. But, WLOX News has been told Cantore called Neptune officials last night and said he had to cancel his trip.

Neptune leaders quickly turned to Joe Horn. The former New Orleans Saints wide receiver will now serve as the parade's grand marshal.

The Neptune parade rolls through downtown at 5:30 Saturday night. It's Biloxi's first night parade since Hurricane Katrina. As many as 50 units will participate in the Neptune parade.
