The weather forecast was frightful for last Friday night and the decision was made to postpone the second week of Heritage Christmas activities until this Friday, Dec. 21.
Because of the change, some groups have had to bow out and others are a "maybe," but perennial favorites like photos with Santa, horse and wagon rides and treats from community organizations will be offered as part of the delayed 28th annual community celebration.
In addition, the Life Center on North Carlisle Street will be open with games, movies, crafts and music, according to Georgina Cranston, executive director of the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce.
Allison-Antrim Museum and the High Line Train Station went on with their activities last Friday and will not be open this week.
"The decision to postpone Heritage Christmas a week was a difficult one to make since the weather is so unpredictable and we knew it would mean inconveniencing many people. We've been so lucky the past few years with great weather for many events, perhaps it was our turn for a wash-out," Cranston said. "Despite it all, we are excited to host Heritage Christmas this weekend and hope many will join us downtown, whatever the weather decides to do. Hopefully, the weather will match my 2019 word of the year: nice!"
