LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The first Mosey Down Main Street of the 2019 season is canceled due to weather conditions. Organizers say Saturday's event went from "the show must go on" to "it's better to be safe than sorry." It was originally supposed to start at 6 p.m. and end at 11 p.m.

Mosey Down Main Street Co-Founder Ken McCammon said they want to avoid putting people in danger who may still try to attend the event despite the weather.

This is the first time they've had to cancel for bad weather in six years. McCammon said him and his team of volunteers are very attentive to weather conditions, especially since the Indiana State Fair stage collapse that happened due to stormy weather.

Although flooding isn't in the forecast, he said this event still wouldn't have done well under Saturday's weather condition.

"Why bring people out onto the streets, people aren't going to want to come out, vendors aren't going to make any money," said McCammon.

The next officially schedule Mosey is set for June 8th. The free, family-friendly festival series runs until September.
