Taste of Douglas County postponed
Due to an impending snowstorm, the annual Taste of Douglas County that was scheduled for Thursday, April 11, has been postponed.
Forecasts calling for up to a foot of snow — or more — to fall between Wednesday and Friday morning, and winds gusting in excess of 40 mph, caused the Douglas County Car Care Program to move its yearly fundraiser.
"Everybody's safety is our priority," Kris Chisholm, executive director of the car care program, said Tuesday afternoon.
The event is being moved to Monday, April 15. It will still run from 5-7 p.m., and be held at the Holiday Inn ballroom in Alexandria. He said that all but one of the 16 area restaurants and food retailers have indicated they will be there Monday, and he was still awaiting word on the other one.
This year's theme features a food truck and street food.
