Thursday Morning Marigold Festival Weather Update

Mineral Springs Park received nearly 2-inches of rain overnight, leaving several areas of the park with deep standing water.  Additional rain, sometimes heavy, is expected through Friday night.  As of right now NO VEHICLES WILL BE ALLOWED OFF OF THE PAVED SURFACES IN MINERAL SPRINGS PARK.  This includes Art in the Park, Kids Experience, Civic Collage, Festive Foods and all grass parking areas. 

The Marigold Festival Committee will meet this afternoon to discuss options for events that will be affected by the heavy rain.  We know many vendors and the public have questions.  We will post more information here as it becomes available.

We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding.  Despite Mother Nature's best efforts we will stay focused on our goal - to host a safe and fun Pekin Marigold Festival.
