Port Alberni’s Our Town kids’ event cancelled due to rain

Port Alberni's Parks and Rec department has cancelled Our Town tonight (July 21/15) after a sudden rain squall hit the city.

Our Town, which was supposed to start at 6 p.m. at Williamson Park on Johnston Road in Port Alberni, has been cancelled due to rain.

A Parks and Rec spokesperson said the rain squall hit as organizers were setting up at the park, and some of the material for the event was ruined. There was also not enough time to move the event to Glenwood Centre, which is the alternate location in inclement weather.

The next Our Town free family event will be Tuesday, Aug. 4 at Gyro Park, from 6–8 p.m. Join volunteers for the Parks and Rec version of Mardi Gras.
