The cold, wind and rain on Friday night apparently were too much for RIley Festival organizers, vendors and those who might attend, as well, so the event closed unofficially as of about 7 p.m., according to a festival spokesperson.
The good news is that while the National Weather Service accurately predicted 100 percent rain for Friday evening, it also says the precipitation is due to move out of central Indiana around 2 a.m. The forecast for Saturday is sun and high of 53 degrees.
The festival will resume with a full schedule bright and early Saturday, starting with the 7:30 a.m. James Whitcomb Riley Breakfast at Dale E. Kuhn American Legion Post 119, 275 S. Center St.
