A sold out event has been brought to a halt.
Sunday's (Aug.12) EPCOR Riverfest in Fort Saskatchewan and Devon is cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions.
"Information on refunds will be forthcoming and unfortunately there is no reschedule date," said Brent Collingwood, River Valley Alliance executive director. "We of course are very disappointed as we were all looking for a great day on the water."
Riverfest estimated over 3300 people would be on the river this weekend.
In addition to river activities, the event in the Fort was scheduled to feature water creatures, roller skiing and electric bicycles.
