Founder’s Day, a celebration of Templeton’s heritage planned for Sunday, has been canceled because of the chance of rain, officials announced Friday.
An old-fashioned street fair, vintage tractor displays and crafts were planned to commemorate Founder’s Day, the 125th anniversary of when Templeton's first train passengers stepped into town in November 1886, organizers said.
In the late 1800s, Templeton was the last stop for train passengers coming from the north; a stagecoach then took them south to San Luis Obispo, according to the the Templeton Chamber of Commerce.
In previous years, the event was designed as a homecoming social for the small North County community, but the chamber and the Templeton Historical Museum Society recently revived it.
“With the busy holiday season right around the corner, we will not be rescheduling this year’s event,” chamber president Rob Rosales said of Sunday's cancellation.
Organizers plan to bring the event back in 2012.
