ROCHESTER, Minn. - Thursday's heavy rains have led to the cancellation of Rochesterfest events for the afternoon and evening.
Activities had been called off through 3 pm but event organizers now say wet conditions at Soldiers Field Park are bad enough to cancell all activities there.
The 'Stand Down for Veterans' event has been relocated to the Soldiers Field Veteran' Memorial and will go on until 7 pm. Indoor activities like the Library Book Sale and the 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' musical at Lourdes High School will be held as planned.
The Chamber Happy Hour event featuring The Reunion Band has also been cancelled and the Karaoke Extravaganza will be rescheduled at a later date at Charlie's Eatery & Pub. The Liberty Bell Hot Air Balloon Glow will be rescheduled for Friday evening.
