Attention street party people… there’s a change of plans for this Thursday!
Jan 19, 2017
The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters has regrettably made the decision to cancel the Norwood on Tour Street Party, scheduled to take place on Thursday 19 January ahead of the Santos Tour Down Under on The Parade, Norwood on Friday 20 January, due to the inclement weather forecast for thunderstorms and heavy rain on Thursday evening.
Mayor Robert Bria said that despite the Council’s best efforts to be optimistic about the weather for the Norwood on Tour Street Party, the forecast has unfortunately taken a turn for the worse and the Council has been forced to cancel this event.
“Whilst this has been a difficult decision to make, in the interests of ensuring the safety of suppliers, entertainers, staff and patrons, the Council believes this is the right course of action. Events SA has been notified and is supportive of the Council’s decision,” said Mayor Bria.
The Santos Tour Down Under Bupa Challenge and Bupa Stage 4 Start will still proceed as planned on Friday 20 January, so people are encouraged to come to The Parade to have a coffee, breakfast and support the cycling community!
