Broken Arrow, Okla. - The Blue Bell ice cream manufacturing facility in Broken Arrow has cancelled their annual Taste of Summer event this Saturday because of the concern of severe weather.
From Blue Bell:
It is with deep regret that we are forced to cancel the Taste of Summer event at Blue Bell Creameries in Broken Arrow that was slated for this Saturday October 13, 2012. We have as much fun putting this event on as the community has attending it, but due to the weather forecast for this weekend we feel it is in the best interest of everyone that we cancel it for this year.
As much as we regret canceling the event, the safety of our employees and the public will always prevail. The forecast is calling for spring like thunderstorms with the possibility of rain, hail, strong winds, and even the possibility of tornadoes. These conditions mixed with all of the canopies, bounce houses, electrical cords, and tents are a recipe for a huge safety hazard and we are erring on the side of caution.
Please accept our apology for the change in plans.
