These are outdoors events!Why not cancel them and re-schedule.
If we get the rain and winds that they are expecting, these events will be empty of people.
I go to these events every year but not in a rainy and windy day!

Please.

As if a wee bit of rain could stop the Irish Fest.

Toughen up, grab a Guinness, and hang out under a tent until it blows over...or just go tonight.

Good tips here. I've done some work in the past with the American Chemistry Council, so I would also suggest folks go out and grab chlorine tabs (just in case the drinking water becomes tainted). Safe, cheap, and easily available. Hope everyone stays high and dry!

Tuxedo Junction? They are in cahoots with the city. Always have been. It's no coincidence that the city would move it indoors to that venue over any other.

Tuxedos is a music venue and just yards from where the concert would take place in good weather.Seems a logical sot to me. As for them being in cahoots? I think not, they have been fined more than a few times for under age drinkers and their customers are often under close police scrutiny (read harassment)
Now back to bed sleepyhead.

Cancel these events now. The roads in Danbury were dangerous and flooded with the thunderstorm on Wednesday. This will be even worse.

perhaps its just repayment for city providing a police presence outside their venue several nights a week.

If they cancel they will lose a lot of money. If they postpone, well that just not be possible becuase it is hard to organize in the first place it is harder to change the date if not impossible... If they go ahead and hope for the best they atleast will minimize their loss. If one person shows up and spends 20-bucks that is less money the organization will have to shell out.

I am thinking I might actually go this year as it won't be overcrowded!

That makes no sense what so ever...You lose money if no one shows up. They should just move it to next weekend, it is not that big of a deal to do! As a vendor, I wish they would move it.

Well, that's why we're going to the Irish Fest tonight. I'd prefer to go Saturday and make a day of it, but the weather looks too nuts.
