The final day of SparkCon, a downtown Raleigh arts festival that was already rescheduled once due to Hurricane Florence, was canceled Sunday after strong winds damaged festival structures overnight.
“Early this morning, high winds caused significant damage throughout Raleigh and tossed all SPARKcon’s tents, supplies, and gear down the street,” event organizers posted to Facebook on Sunday. “So now, for your and our safety, we are calling a truce with Mother Nature and canceling day four of SPARKcon XIII.”
“Mother Nature might hate us,” organizers joked in a press release, referencing Hurricane Florence, which forced the festival to be rescheduled from its original date in September.
