Norman’s Business and Community Affairs Committee meeting, at 8:30 a.m. Friday, has been canceled.

The potential arctic blast predicted to hit the metro has prompted Christmas in Old Town organizers to go ahead and cancel Friday’s activities.

These events will not be rescheduled, but will resume in 2014.

For those without tickets, all seats not occupied by the season ticket holder or by fans who purchased tickets in advance will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

For this game only, concession stands will offer popcorn and sodas for $1 each.
