With a forecast for Saturday, May 19 calling for steady heavy rain and chilly temperatures in the low 50, the powers that be have decided that Belmont Town Day in Belmont Center will be pushed back two weeks.
“[Town Day] has been postponed till June 2nd,” wrote Gerry Dickhaut, owner of Champions Sports and president of the Belmont Center Business Association which runs the annual event when Leonard Street is closed to traffic and businesses and organizations set up booths, along with music, and entertainment for kids.
It is the second time in recent years that the day-long celebration has been pushed back due to bad weather; Town Day was postponed in 2014 due to anticipated bad weather. Ironically, that day, May 17, was sunny and warm.
