Severe weather, including heavy rain, thunder and lightning, forced the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce to cancel A Taste of Edmonds for the remainder of the day Friday. It’s the first time the festival has had a weather cancellation in its 33-year history.

“The weather has won,” said a statement posted on the A Taste of Edmonds Facebook page late Friday afternoon. “A Taste of Edmonds is now closed for the day. Saturday and Sunday we will be open.”

“Sorry everyone, come tomorrow (8/15) and help turn our frowns upside down.”
