A nasty arctic blast cut the annual Vitruvian Lights in Addison short. The Georgia Bridgewater band rocked the park for about an hour, before the party was canceled when the temperature dropped below 30 degrees.
People arrived bundled in coats and blankets to dance, grab a bite to eat from the food trucks, take in all the beautiful lights and see Santa. Event organizer, Jessica Zazzara, knew going into the night that it might have to be canceled due to the weather. She took it minute by minute, and finally decided it was just too cold and too windy, and was concerned about the chance of precipitation.
"We just want everybody to have a good time and enjoy, but be safe at the same time," said Zazzara.
The light display itself is not going anywhere. There are more than a million LED lights wrapped around more than 550 trees. It's free and open through January 1st.
