4 State Trucks alters festivities due to weather

Due to the uncertainty of Saturday’s weather forecast, which includes the chance for evening storms, the September 23rd convoy of the GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION TRUCK SHOW has been canceled, and the Roots & Boots concert has been relocated indoors.

According to Bryan Martin, organizer “With the National Weather Service calling for potentially severe weather Saturday evening, to include flooding downpours, hail, and damaging wind gusts, in addition to growing concerns from local Public Safety officials, we cannot put the public, our customers, our driver participants, or our music entertainers in harm’s way.

We certainly know that the convoy, the parking of the trucks along 26th Street, their light show at nightfall, plus the free concert are all a treat for the community. But after much consideration, we must heed on the side the safety for everyone involved.”

Unfortunately, the Roots and Boots concert, being moved to a small indoor venue with very limited seating, is SOLD OUT.

Martin added, “We regret these last-minute changes, but this was the safest path forward, and we are committed to providing a fun-filled weekend for as many folks as possible!”

Friday’s (tonight’s) event will be MONSTER TRUCK MANIA, with fireworks afterward, and will take place as scheduled at 6:30 p.m.
