Yenda's Carols by Candlelight will not be held this year, with a decision made to cancel the event on Sunday.
The event, which was due to take place on Sunday afternoon in Yenda's Memorial Park, was cancelled hours before the event was due to begin after a decision was made due to impending wet weather.
With a 43 per cent chance of rain due to hit the area, Yenda Carols by Candlelight chairman Ross Blake said the committee behind the event judged the conditions to be too risky to set up the sound system and with more than 200 school children due to attend the event as part of a total expected attendance of 800, there was not enough space to move the event to the nearby Memorial Hall.
"It's just disappointing, it was going to be a good night," Mr Blake said.
"We had to make a decision... [the rain] is coming over from the west and is due to hit around 6pm."
Mr Blake said there was currently no plans to move the event to another date, with the event due to return next year but he said he will welcome the rain which is projected to arrive.
The cancellation marks the second time in the last three years the carols have been cancelled due to inclement weather, with the carols in 2017 also falling to the same situation.
