Alpenfest Organizers Taking Precautions for Potential Severe Storms Wednesday

The Gaylord area could be hit hard by potentially severe storms Wednesday.

That has Alpenfest organizers taking precautions.

Organizers have been through this before and are prepared.

With the severe threat hanging over their heads, Alpenfest decided to move Wednesday’s entertainment from the main stage to under the pavilion.

If you’re thinking of making the trip, the Alpenfest president tells me other events will continue as normal.

“We’ll still continue on with all of our entertainment as planned and all of our food events this evening, the only time we’re going to stop anything is if there is any type of lightening and at that time we’ll make a decision what to do,” said Alpenfest President, Ken Mattei.

He says people’s safety at Alpenfest is their number one concern.

They will keep in contact with the National Weather Service to make decisions that keep the good time going for everyone as much as possible.

9&10 News will continue to monitor things in Gaylord.
