July 23, 2010 — Halifax Rocks is a concert taking place this weekend and organizers say they're prepared for whatever Mother Nature brings.
It was a much better day across the Maritimes Friday.
Damp and dreary conditions dominated the region on Thursday, putting a bit of a damper on concert preparations. Halifax Rocks is a show featuring the Black Eyed Peas and Weezer and is set to hit the stage on Saturday. The recent stormy weather however, has given organizers a lot to contend with.
“In an outdoor festival when it rains, it just slows you down,” says Production Manager Ron Chamberlain about Thursday's conditions. Still, Chamberlain adds that they're prepared for whatever Mother Nature brings this weekend.
“We have lots of weather protection on the stage. Tents, squeegees, mops.”
The system has continued to push east bringing unsettled conditions to the Maritimes and making way for the sunny skies once again in the Maritimes.
Throughout much of July, people in Atlantic Canada have been using their umbrellas for shade as opposed to shelter from the rain. There have been days filled with sunny skies and above-normal temperatures.
