Rain wipes out Vernon’s Civic Sounds

The Dirt Road Kings were to have played Thursday night; series resumes next Thursday

For a second time this season, the free, outdoor Civic Sounds concert series has been cancelled due to the rain.

The Dirt Road Kings were to take the stage Thursday night. Event organizer, the Downtown Vernon Association (DVA), said canncelling a show isn’t an easy decision.

“We have to take into consideration the quality of our programming, as well as safety,” said DVA events and marketing coordinator Dudley Coulter.
