WINNIPEG — Torrential rains won’t stop fluffy bears from convening on Assiniboine Park today.

Organizers of the 24th annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic said the event will go on, but the opening will be delayed until noon.

Event staff met early this morning to assess the park’s conditions after severe thunderstorms flooded city streets, tore down hydro lines and left traffic lights flashing on Saturday.
