Stomp the Yard cancelled

The 11th Annual Stomp the Yard event, scheduled for noon-5 p.m. today at Houston Avery Park, has been cancelled due to the threat of inclement weather.

Dr. Bernard Bishop reported shortly before 8 a.m. that the annual youth celebration probably could have been completed before anticipated winds arrive, but the threat of rain throughout the afternoon was the deciding factor.

Bishop did not indicate that the event would be rescheduled
