Pluviofiles (rain-lovers) may rejoice at having an opportunity to sport their favorite umbrellas as the weather forecast is predicting a rainy day; but today's Redbud festivities will go on, as planned. Those with aquaphobia also are most welcome and encouraged to attend, if they dare.
In its third year, Redbud City Night on the Bricks continues today rain or shine — SEFF spokesman Ed Bolt said.
The two-day festival — that began with a community dinner Friday night — features pop-up shops, live entertainment, food trucks and a farmers market.
“We will have tents over the vendors and our musicians will be set up under the canopy across the street at the library,” Bole said.
Safe Events for Families (SEFF) — along with local sponsors Visit Shawnee Inc. (VSI), Vyve, Citizen Potawatomi Nation (CPN), the City of Shawnee, the Avedis Foundation, and others — have teamed up to organize the festival focused solely on uniting the community.
Today's event begins at 11 a.m. and will wrap up around 5 p.m.
