After insisting yesterday that the show would go on as planned tonight,
the Oil Center Renaissance Association announced this morning that its
annual Christmas celebration, Festival of Light, has been moved to
Saturday. The association said tonight's forecast for inclement weather
would make conditions too dangerous for stage equipment and performers,
as well as for volunteers and festival goers. Saturday, in contrast,
should be a beautiful day.
The light festival is tomorrow from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Visit the Oil Center’s Web site for a schedule of events.
The National Weather Service is predicting that this afternoon's rains
will give way to a continuous snow during the evening hours, with
potential snowfall of up to 2 inches. The snowfall should end by dawn.
