OC's Festival of Light moved to Saturday

by Leslie Turk

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 event 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 forecasting that Friday afternoon 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.
