Despite the website saying it's on, I just saw a post on their Facebook page -- it's canceled! Here's a press release:
They told me via Twitter that there's no rain date at this time, they only had their permits for one day.The Columbia Heights Day festival, planned for Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm, is now canceled.
Columbia Heights Day Initiative President Sergio Herrera offers the following statement:
"It saddens us to say, due to circumstances beyond our control, the 5th Annual Columbia Heights Day Festival is canceled. Many of the companies and services that we rely on to present the festival are unable to perform their contracted duties for us, due to the potential of extreme weather. We sincerely apologize for the last minute notification, but our decision to cancel the festival is based on information provided to us this morning.
“We are in the process of reaching out to all festival participants to make them aware of the event cancellation. Over the coming days, we will be answering specific questions from individual people and organizations regarding this situation. Until then, we thank you in advance for your patience as we sort through the logistics; please stayed tuned to our Facebook and Webpage for updates."
