PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - Organizers of a Cinco de Mayo parade in Pueblo are going ahead with their plans on Saturday after getting a last-minute reprieve.

Supporters vowed to go ahead with the parade, even though they didn’t have a permit and could not afford to rent street barricades required by Pueblo police.

A barricade company offered to donate barricades on Friday and Police Chief Luis Velez awarded the permit after agreeing to provide parade security.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain (https://tinyurl.com/k5sddcj ), the length of this year’s parade had to be shortened to meet city regulations.
