Threatening weather delays Scratch Ankle Festival for a second week

Published on April 16, 2015 with No Comments

Due to the threat of weather and in consideration of all those involved and participating in the Milton Riverwalk Market, the City of Milton Parks Department has decided to postpone the market’s opening day to April 24.

“With the threat of rain and the weather pattern the past few days we want to make sure this is a successful start to something new to the Milton Riverwalk area,” said Milton Parks Director John Norton. “We are proud of what the vendors will be offering at this new market and want to do our utmost to help them succeed.”

A decision involving Bands on the Blackwater will be made on April 17 by noon.

“The setup involving Bands on the Blackwater is less involved so we are allowed a little more flexibility,” Norton said. “We will definitely be keeping an eye on the weather so we can give everyone as much notice as possible if we do have to cancel the concert on South Willing St. as well.”

This week Deja’ Vu is scheduled to take to the stage at 7 p.m. on South Willing St. and will be performing until 9 p.m., weather permitting.

Any cancellations of these additional events will be announced by the Milton Parks Department through the media as well as our respective Facebook pages.

As of today the Milton Scratch Ankle Festival is set for April 24 to run from 4 -9 p.m. and the Riverwalk Market will open on April 24 from 5-9 p.m.

For information on any of the City of Milton events such as Scratch Ankle, Bands on the Blackwater, and the Riverwalk Market you can call the Milton Parks Department at 983-5466.
