There may be something missing from your community's Columbus Day parade this weekend because of the shutdown.

The Rhode Island National Guard says it may have to pull out of as many as 15 events because it can't pay soldiers for the extra work.

The guard isn't "officially" pulling the plug on anything just yet but it is warning event organizers across the state.
