Weather cancels Grey Lynn Festival

By Dan Lake

The annual Grey Lynn Festival has been cancelled this year due to bad weather.  

The popular event held at Grey Lynn Park was due to take place on Saturday, but organisers announced on their website and Facebook page late yesterday they were pulling the pin on this year’s event due to a high likelihood of rain in Auckland this weekend.

"It has not been an easy decision to make and has not been taken lightly," the organisers posted on Facebook.

"Members of the board have watched the weather satellite and the weather for Saturday has not changed - it is going to rain and a strong wind is going to blow right through the park making it a very miserable day for all participants.

"We are as much in shock and disappointed as you all."

Metservice is predicting strong northwesterlies and rain developing throughout the day.
