Sometimes plans have to change.  That can happen a lot when mother nature is involved.  Due to rain, strong winds, and hail possible on Saturday, the MoTown Craft Beer Festival is being moved to Sunday.

Organizers say "Due to the unsafe weather that will be here on Saturday during the morning, during set up for the festival, and during the festival, we will be moving the Mo-Town Craft Beer Festival to Sunday.  The best part of Sunday, no rain and no heat.  High of 78 with scattered clouds.  Perfect outside beer drinking weather!

For the MoTown Mile race, they will attempt to have it on Saturday.  There might be a couple of delays, but the race will not move.

Stay updated on the latest on the MoTown Facebook event page.
