The grand opening of the Surrey International Lantern Festival has been delayed for a third time.
Canada Chuansheng Media, the organizer of the event, posted to its social media channels on Wednesday (Oct. 31) that the opening “Halloween Party” was cancelled due to heavy rain.
“Due to heavy raining, the condition in our park is not suitable for people to walk in,” the company wrote in a post to Facebook.
Employees will be on hand at Cloverdale’s Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre Park (17728 64 Ave) to hand out promised candy bags to trick-or-treaters in case they show up expecting to attend the festival.
The grand opening of the event was originally scheduled for mid-October, but has now been rescheduled three times.
