Festival rained out

Released: 04/29/2006

SUNDAY, 11:30 a.m. -- LSU Alexandria’s Renaissance Festival and library book sale have been canceled for Saturday, although a decision will be announced at 3 p.m. today whether to cancel tonight’s performance of “Romeo and Juliet.”

Festival organizer Dr. Eamon Halpin said officials will decide later today whether to reschedule activities for Sunday. Whether to hold a miniature festival on Sunday depends on various factors, including whether tonight’s play is performed.

If the rain persists and “Romeo and Juliet” is canceled, it is very likely that the play, book sale and some festival events will be moved to Sunday.
