We said “rain or shine”. But what about thunderstorms?
It’s a mixed weather outlook for GPP#5. As of this morning, we still plan to go ahead with the event, starting at 1:50pm.
If a storm does come through, we will halt the event. Crowds will be able to seek shelter at Waterloo Town Square, and at a number of “shelter porches” in the neighbourhood. (GPP volunteers will have a list of those shelter points, so just look for someone in a stylish orange pinny.)
If a series of massive storms has us in the crosshairs, and Environment Canada issues extreme weather alerts, we will have to cancel the event. We will issue cancellation notices on Twitter, Facebook, and on the blog, so watch those channels. (We’re really hoping that won’t happen, though!)
For now, cross your fingers, bring your umbrella, and come join us for what is promising to be an interesting afternoon!
