Rain and winds has forced the cancellation of the CentreFest kickoff barbecue planned for Red Deer City Hall Park at noon Friday.
It is the first time in 12 years that the kick-off has been cancelled, festival director Janice Shimek said Friday morning in a news release.
CentreFest is a festival of street performers that will run Saturday and Sunday as scheduled when the forecast is for sunnier weather. The festival will be in downtown Red Deer. It is only the Friday preview and barbecue that is being cancelled.
Plans are underway to reschedule the CentreFest Atco Gas Kick-Off barbecue. More information will be released as it becomes available.
