An afternoon rain and wind storm ripped through Navarre at about 4:30 today, uprooting vendors’ tents at Fun Fest and forcing visitors to head for cover.
The 20-minute storm hit the beach during performer Chloe Channell’s second song. The Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors the event, called it off at about 5 p.m. as people held onto their tents and their belongings.
Organizers haven’t yet called off the fireworks show, which is slated for 9 p.m.
Chad Montana was supposed to headline the 31st annual event at 7:45 p.m., but his performance,
along with the Cooties, was cancelled.
