    “A rental agreement for a hotel room to watch a parade can be excused if the parade is cancelled, though the room could be occupied, under the aptly-named doctrine “frustration of purpose”—unless, of course, the contract states otherwise.”

    Surely, the contract would have to state that the room was being rented to watch the parade, in the first place, it couldn’t just be inferred. I would hate to think that I could rent a room in a hotel, just coincidentally on a weekend when the parade I had no interest in watching happened, and have my reservation canceled because the parade was.

    See Krell v. Henry, [1903] 2 K.B. 740 (Court of Appeal, England, 1903). This case involved cancellation of a coronation parade for King Edward VII due to his illness; an American parallel occurred when the inauguration parade for President Ronald Reagan was cancelled due to inclement weather.
