Bitterly cold temperatures have forced the outdoor New Year's Eve celebration at Fort Worth's Sundance Square to be canceled, officials said Saturday. However, the numerous indoor events at Sundance Square are still planned.
Organizers said due to forecasted extreme temperatures they canceled their outdoor celebration. The event was set to take place at 10:30 p.m. New Year's Eve on the plaza with entertainment by the Hunter Sullivan Band.
"It's disappointing to say the least to not see all the people standing on the plaza," said Ryan Schmidt, general manager of Bird Cafe on the square.
The cafe's outdoor patio area remained empty on Saturday evening, but Schmidt still expects customers to flock inside.
"Still going to be busy," he said. "Still have a little over 200 people on the books and people coming in and already calling in for reservations 11:30 til midnight."
Events planned at Four Day Weekend, Scat Jazz Lounge, Bass Performance Hall, restaurants and private events are still planned to take place on New Year's Eve.
