Bad news for those of you who purchased tickets to the April 25-26 Taste of Downtown East Village event in Long Beach. The delicious festivities have been halted due to a forecast that calls for bad weather. The organizers said the decision to take a literal rain check was a difficult one. “As this is an outdoor event, the rain would affect the ambiance as well as the attendance.” (No joke!) “We want to make sure this event benefits both the attendees and the businesses.”
The food fest will be rescheduled, but exact dates are TBD. Not to worry, purchases will be honored at any upcoming Taste of Downtown events, from the rescheduled East Village event to the Waterfront event on June 13 and 14 to the Pine Avenue event on August 22 and 23.
