Union City officials announced that the street festival scheduled for tonight has been postponed due to projected thunderstorms.

“The street festival and concert scheduled for tonight on 32nd Street has been cancelled,” a statement from the Union City Police Department read. “Due to safety concerns with expected severe weather the event will not be held. Thank you to our residents who were patient and understanding during the preparation of this event. The safety of our residents and visitors is our primary concern.”

The festival, to be hosted by Governor Phil Murphy and Mayor Brian Stack, has several musicians slated to perform tonight, including Tono Rosario, Alex Sensation, Joe Veras, Maxima Alerta, and the Alan Quinn Orchestra.

Now, the festival will be taking place on Tuesday, May 28 at 6 p.m. at the same location, and will feature the same international artists.
