TUPELO – The Earth Day 2011 celebration scheduled for today at Ballard Park has been canceled.
Weather concerns and other circumstances forced the cancellation, said Shanta Eiland of the Tupelo Parks and Recreation Department. The event will not be rescheduled.
Five trees donated by the city’s Public Works department were planted in the park Thursday, Eiland said. The trees were scheduled to be planted today.
