Weather fears prompt abbreviated WUES Boo Bash carnival Saturday

October 23, 2015

With severe weather heading to Houston, the West University Elementary School PTO has shortened times for its Boo Bash Carnival Saturday.

The event will now be held from 9 a.m.-noon, with lunch being served from 11 a.m.-noon. All pre-bought meals and confetti eggs must be picked up by noon.

“We know this is not what we hoped to be able to do tomorrow,” read the announcement on the PTO’s Facebook page, “but for the sake of the kids we are trying to fit in a fun event for them.”

Those who volunteered for afternoon shifts are being asked to report to the volunteer check-in booth near the marquee on University Boulevard at 8:45 a.m. instead.

The weather forecast is calling for rain chances to increase beginning about 11 a.m. Organizers caution that they will be closely monitoring the weather and are prepared to shut down the event in event of lightning or heavy rain.
