For the second time in three years, the John Blue Festival has been cancelled as a result of the rain and resulting mud caused by tropical storm Michael.
““It’s very important to me that our patrons and everyone know that we are very disappointed by having to cancel the event,” said event chair and John Blue descendant Jim Blue. “I understand that the two days are supposed to be beautiful, but with the rain, we’re unable to set up for the festival and, if we get the two to three inches they’re expecting, it will turn the parking area to mud. We don’t want people getting stuck in the mud and having to walk through it to get to events.”
Blue has been helping with the festival for 33 of its 35 years and said, besides when Hurricane Matthew hit in 2016, he can’t remember any other times when the festival was canceled for both days. Occasionally the Sunday events would be canceled due to rain, but it wasn’t typical both days were canceled.” Read more…
The cancellation announcement and more information can be found on the John Blue Cotton Festival Facebook page.
