We are monitoring the weather very closely and have come up with a plan for Saturday. We have been in close contact with the National Weather Service in Tallahassee and they feel that the storm my stall before it reaches us and if it does not stall will be gong between 2:00-3:00pm. The show as of right now will go on as planned with a modified schedule. It will be a one time performance for the bands and this schedule allows to have some time for rain delays and still get the visiting bands back on the road at a decent hour.
We will still have the same times for Hospitality Drop off. This will be from 9:00am-Noon.
