This Saturday’s CultureFEST in downtown Oxford has been rescheduled, thanks to the likelihood that the area will be dealing with the remnants of Hurricane Ian, now poised to hit Florida’s Gulf Coast tomorrow.
Two of the event organizers – Oxford Mayor Jackie Sergent and Ajulo Othow – were on TownTalk Monday to spread the word about the event, which was going to mark its second year of being held in the parking lot at Littlejohn Street.
Sergent contacted WIZS News Tuesday morning to share the news of the postponement.
“We have made the difficult decision to cancel and postpone until next May,” Sergent said.
With weather forecasts predicting that North Carolina will be hit with heavy rains from the storm, it was a case of better safe than sorry.
