So much for the rain...

Outdoor events in the Chattahoochee Valley on Saturday morning took place beside sunny skies, despite Friday's warnings that rain could dampen weekend plans.

Runners and walkers laced up their tennis shoes for the Open Door Walk Classic and the SMA 5K Eat 'n Run, both held Saturday morning.

Amid earlier rain warnings, Bark for Life was rescheduled for 2-5 p.m. Sunday (March 25) at the same location, Britt David Park football field. Vendors can begin setting up at noon on Sunday. Learn more about the popular dog event here.
