ORANGE — Heavy rains throughout the area on Friday will not prevent the Showdown on the Sabine this weekend.

“There were suppose to be some test runs on Friday,” a representative of Orange Convention and Visitors Bureau said. “Those were canceled.”

The Tunnel Boat Races event scheduled this weekend will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday at the City of Orange Boat Ramp located at 1000 Simmons Drive.
