We just got word from one of the organizers of the White Rock Lake Festival that the concert and food truck event scheduled this weekend has been called off an account of the high winds, proving my theory that "wind blows."
In his own words:
I'm sorry to say but the Festival this weekend is canceled due to rain on Sunday and the wind today was blowing over porta pottys and forecast says the wind will be twice as strong tomorrow.
The stage company said 25 plus mile an hour wind would take the stage down the way it is right beside a lake.
Setting up today and the wind was really howling ... when it comes across that entire lake from the south it almost knocks a guitar out of your arms.
We are going to look at a reschedule next year.
Don't be sad. It's OK.
