The Music Through the Years Music Festival, set to take place last weekend at George Core Park was over before it could begin.

Mother Nature, it seemed, wasn’t in the mood for a concert as rain soaked the afternoon making the electronic setup needed to run the show impossible.

The festival, planned by Dana Boyer and the music committee, was planned as fundraiser for the upcoming Centennial Celebration in June.

This week the committee gathered to figure out what they would do in lieu of the cancellation, but no official announcement has been made.

Pre-sale tickets will be refunded at City Hall for those who purchased in advance.

“We’ll see what we can do,” said Mayor Mel Magidson. “We hope people will step up and provide financial support.”

The concert had been delayed until later in the day, but as storms continued, soon the bands were sent home.
