Could heavy rains this weekend are impact the plans for some area festivals during a busy weekend?

We will be watching for updates on The Baton Rouge Blues Festival, and the Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival.

At this point, The Baton Rouge Blues Fest has not delayed any outdoor performances because of the threat of severe weather that is expected to roll into the area this weekend.

The Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival event organizers say that in the event of a tornado warning, they will systemacially evacuate festival-goers in a timely manner. They are constandly monitoring the weather.

“We have already stepped up our game on that. We’ve got saw dust on hand. We have it loaded in trucks we have it stationed in different areas of the park we’ve already preempted and put some in certain spots,” said Public Relations Director, Donald Lanier.

Rain or shine, the show will go on!
