ACT postponed. Polar plunge delayed. Games canceled. Mircobrew fest? It's on!
EUGENE, Ore. The snow is forcing many events this weekend to be postponed or canceled.
Students taking the ACTs will have to wait.
Testing at Corvallis High School, Marist, and South Eugene will be rescheduled in the next few weeks.
The delay will not impact many students college application process, said Rick Gardner, assistant principal at Marist.
"A lot of juniors are taking the test this time of year," he said, "so it's not as critical as a test would have been in October or December."
The Eugene YMCA has called off programs through Saturday, and the entire Kidsport weekend schedule is suspended.
Polar plunges in Eugene, Corvallis and Portland will be rescheduled.
And officials are postponing the Cupid's Cowboy Challenge Rodeo in Albany, as well as the 2014 Block Kids Competition at Valley River Center.
Despite the weather, one event is still continuing as planned.
KLCC'S Microbrew Festival will take place on Friday (from 5 p.m. - 11 p.m.) and Saturday (1 p.m. - 11 p.m.) at the Lane Events Center.
Tickets are $15, and the price includes three drink tickets and a free glass.
Gayle Chisholm of KLCC said all proceeds go towards the public radio station. KLCC's website is offering a coupon for free transportation to the event.
"The snow is not going to slow us down," she said. "We're open and all the beers are here. We have 62 breweries here, set up, ready to go."
