Literally minutes before gates were set to open, organizers of Henderson HarvestFest were forced to pull the plug on the event after the forecast called for continued rain and thunderstorms throughout the night.

Organizers made the following announcement on their Facebook page:

ATTENTION!!! Due to weather, storms coming in, potential damage to equipment, and mainly SAFETY, tonight’s festival HAS BEEN CANCELLED! We are sorry, but this is completely out of our control. If your tickets were purchased online, we will send an email out to the address you used for purchase letting you know about a refund.

Again, we apologize, any will keep you updated.

We’ll provide more updates as they become available.
