MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (March 13, 2015) - It is with deep regret that the Town of Mount Pleasant and Mount Pleasant Towne Centre have decided to cancel ArtFest scheduled for tomorrow, March 14. We have been closely monitoring the weather forecast for several days and feel that it is in the best interest of our participating children and artists to not take the risk to hold the event with the high threat of lightning during event time.
“We all put a lot of heart and soul into planning this event that we and our community love so much,” said Special Events Planner Nicole Harvey. “We are truly saddened to make this announcement but public safety must always be our primary concern.”
“In response to the impending severe weather, we regret to inform you that Saturday’s ArtFest event has been canceled,” said Towne Centre Marketing Manager Erin Engebritson. “We are taking these precautionary steps to ensure the safety of the event vendors, performers, attendees and our employees. We are already looking forward to 2016’s event so stay tuned.”
Unfortunately rescheduling this year’s event is not possible, but ArtFest will return in all its glory on March 12, 2016.
