We are so used to beautiful weather year around here in our paradise by the sea, that when it does rare its ugly side, it catches us by surprise.
That’s what happened on St. Patrick’s Day as the winds began to pick up in the afternoon and continued to grow until they were dismounting the awnings of the concessions by the time the first act was performing. It got worse from there. Alan Munro shut down early due to equipment being displaced by the winds. Several spectators were forced to leave with sand lodged in their eyes.
By the time the All Star Legends mounted the stage, equipment was actually bounding to the floor. It became an actual safety issue for both performers and audience alike. Wisely, the organizers of the event, Home of the Brave Concerts, decided to stop the action entirely.
They are committed to making it up to those who were there ready to weather the weather and are in the process of rescheduling an event to make it all right for the audience. Stay tuned for the official dates.
So many people work so hard to put on an event like this that the disappointment goes much further than the immediate effects that meet the eye. The musicians were especially disappointed by not getting to share their music.
We are still tallying the good and the bad from this unfortunate weather attack and will surely have more stories for you beginning even later today.
