JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The rough forecast has resulted in two events being cancelled for Jacksonville Veterans Tribute Weekend.

Jacksonville officials decided to cancel both the Veterans Parade and the Family Fun Event portion of this year’s Veterans Tribute Weekend in Jacksonville.

We’re told that vendor cancellations with the threat of high winds and rain put things on hold for the family event.

“Due to the inclement weather predicted for Saturday, November 6, we felt it was best to cancel the event at the Jacksonville Commons. We’ve had multiple vendors regretfully back out, and others express concern over the safety of their equipment,” said Nick Brauninger with Jacksonville Recreation.

Jacksonville says the Lejeune Memorial Garden tours and the Veterans Walk of Honor will still happen.
