There is a ton of stuff going on in East Texas this weekend. Unfortunately, mother nature doesn’t seem to care. KLTV 7 Meteorologist, Grant Dade, says there will be widespread rain until Saturday afternoon. After that, the rainfall will become scattered until Sunday. So, what does this mean for the Komen Tyler ‘Race for the Cure’ and Alleyfest in Longview? We’ve talked to officials from both events and they say the events are going on ‘rain or shine!’Komen Tyler officials released the following statement:
The Susan G. Komen Tyler Race on May 12, 2012 will occur rain or shine. We reserve the right to cancel in extreme circumstances. In that event, there will be no refunds, rather, your entry fee will be used as a donation to the Komen Tyler Race for the Cure.
