Pending storm ruins plans for annual Parrsboro event
PARRSBORO – Hurricane Arthur has officially wiped out its first event in Cumberland County.
The Parrsboro and District Board of Trade announced Thursday morning that its annual Old Fashioned Saturday Night, planned for July 5, has been canceled due to the pending storm, which is expected to dump heavy amounts of rainfall in the region.
“Due to the impending storm, Old Fashioned Saturday Night has been canceled,” said board of trade president David Beattie. “We have scheduled another Old Fashioned Saturday Night for Aug. 16 during the gem and mineral show.”
The board of trade had been planning an event billed as a “Prospector’s Street Party” for Aug. 16.
Running for close to 20 years now, Old Fashioned Saturday Night has been a popular event in Parrsboro, featuring a closed-off Main Street full of antique cars, sidewalk sales, live entertainment and more.
