The Town of Gibbons cancelled one of their Pioneer Days activities.
The schedule for Pioneer Days 2018 listed a free outdoor movie as one of the activities being offered on Friday night (July 13), but the event was cancelled due to the weather.
"We have a big wooden outdoor screen that we bring out and we just didn't want to risk anything happening with that," said Stephanie Wilibnisky, community specials events and recreation coordinator with the town. "But we still had a lot of people come out to our kids' bike parade with their raincoats on and then had a really good family barn dance after."
The movie will be rescheduled for a later date this summer, though the exact date has not yet been chosen. Wilibnisky recommends residents keep an eye out on Facebook and on the town's website for updates.
Gibbons' residents were given an opportunity to vote on what movie would be shown, with E.T. winning by a vast majority.
"It's just one of those activities that is for all ages; it's just something different and fun to come out, sit under the stars, and watch something on the big screen," said Wilibnisky.
Gibbons is still planning to show E.T. at the rescheduled event.
