Rains push Lewisville events


In addition to several recently cancelled events, the annual Spooktacular Trails and Glow Run and Battle of the Badge events are being pushed back due to the rains of the past two weeks. The first two Rocktober concerts, the Lewisville High School Homecoming parade and the Shared Table charity event were all either cancelled or moved indoors, and several events have been pushed back this weekend.

Now, the Battle of the Badge fundraising softball tournament and Keep Lewisville Beautiful’s make-a-difference day event, both initially scheduled for tomorrow Oct. 20, have been moved off that date and next weekend’s spooktacular glow run has been moved indoors.

The 16th Battle of the Badge softball tournament, in which police and fire teams from across North Texas will meet at Lone Star Toyota of Lewisville Railroad Park for a charity tournament benefiting the Children’s Advocacy Center of Denton County, will now be held Nov. 17. The opening ceremony is scheduled for 7:30 a.m., and Lewisville’s own fire and police departments are scheduled to square off at 7:45. Teams from as far away as Garland and Arlington are scheduled to compete.

The annual Spooktacular Trails Glow Run is still scheduled for Oct. 27, but it will move indoors to the Frederick P. Herring Recreation Center, 191 Civic Circle Drive, with the Glow 5K and Monster Mile runs both cancelled, as well as the haunted hayride. A haunted house, carnival games, trick-or-treat trail and costume contest will go on as scheduled from 5 to 10 p.m.

Keep Lewisville Beautiful’s make-a-difference day has not yet been rescheduled.
