Rain kept the neighborhood from enjoying its sixth annual community picnic Saturday.

Before the tables arrived and the food was made the call was made at 10:30 Saturday morning to cancel the Community Policy Action Council’s community picnic.

“We were able to cancel almost everything in time,” said Linda French, owner of Sidetrack Bar and Grill and one of several organizers for the event.

Organizers plan to meet Tuesday to discuss the possibility of rescheduling the picnic for September.

“Maybe late in September after we get through the Heritage Festival,” French said Monday morning.

The picnic was originally scheduled from 1 – 4 p.m. Saturday in Riverside Park.

This year, the Riverside Neighborhood Association and the Downtown Association of Ypsilanti are playing host to the picnic.
