Following a site inspection this morning; the Highland Council has announced that the Winter Wonderland event scheduled for this weekend in Inverness has been postponed for 7 days due to flooding at Whin Park. 

It is now planned that the event will now take place on Friday 18th  (18:00-21:00) and Saturday and Sunday 19th and 20th December (16:00 – 19:00).

Inverness Events and Festivals Working Group Chair Councillor Glynis Sinclair said β€œAt the moment we have widespread flooding on the River Ness side of the park where the water has been flowing in to the site at high tide. The latest information that we have is that the water levels in the river will start to recede towards the weekend; so we have decided to delay the event rather than cancel it completely. Once the park has drained, the plan is to clean up the park, repair any damage caused by the water, and start installing the beautiful illuminations that make this event one of the highlights of our Winter Festival. It is going to a challenging week, but we know just how popular the show is with the younger members of our community and we are determined to do our very best not to disappoint them.”
