Due the extreme wet conditions in Elmwood Park, the annual West Fargo Night to United event set for Tuesday evening, Aug. 2, has been cancelled.
West Fargo Police Chief Arland Rasmussen said that because of the large amount of rain received so far this summer, the park is a sponge and any traffic would do extreme and possibly permanent damage to the park.
He said other venues have been researched but it would be impossible to hold this event anyplace in West Fargo.
This cancellation only affects West Fargo.
