JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As a tropical storm warning covers our area, Mayor Alvin Brown has announced the Jazz Festival outside activities will be cancelled Sunday.
City officials have asked everyone to prepare for Sub-Tropical storm Beryl's anticipated arrival Sunday evening.
"This storm is going to hit us, basically, tomorrow," Mayor Alvin Brown said Saturday. "We want to make sure that we're ready."
At a 6:30 p.m. press conference Saturday, the Mayor announced the cancellation of the outside Jazz Festival activities Sunday. It takes crews more than 12 hours to break down all of the stages, and in anticipation of the storm, the Mayor said safety is the biggest concern. At this point, inside festivities Sunday will still go on, according to Brown.
Saturday night Jazz Fest events and the U.S. Men's soccer match at Everbank Field will go on as planned.
