Due to the snow storm that is expected to reach the Central New Jersey area late Friday night and continue until early Sunday morning, the events listed below have been canceled or postponed. We will update this list throughout the weekend, so please check back for the latest updates. If you would like to add an update to our list, email editor∂planetprinceton.com, send us a tweet or Facebook message, or post on our Facebook page.
As of Friday afternoon, ice skating is still not safe on the lakes in Princeton. A red flag means skating is not safe. White=Safe. We will alert readers when skating is safe. You will be the first to know!
A reminder, no parking on streets during the storm. Plows can’t clean the streets. Most towns have ordinances banning parking on public roads during snow storms. Your vehicle could be towed if you leave it on the street. Park it in a public garage or lot.
We are here for you during the storm! Planet Princeton will cover the storm around the clock. If you have any questions, issues to report, or news tips, please reach out via email, or call or text (609) 375-8920.
