Hi Everyone,
Because of extremely high water levels at Jamaica Bay and more rain coming we’ve decided to cancel the festival 
his Saturday the 27th. We all feel bad about it but we always want to give you the best experience. This year there 
were just too m any bstacles including 8” of rain in a 24 hour period and an impending hurricane on the way. Sorry
if this ruins anybody’s plans. It was a difficult decision by all the organizers. See you there next year.
Batten down the hatches and stay safe during the coming storm. 

All our best,
Don Riepe
