Downtown Culpeper has canceled today's First Fridays outdoor program to ensure public safety, given the high risk of thunderstorms and rain this evening.
The cancellations for Friday, Aug. 5, include Live at the depot with Misfit Syndicate, Publicity Stunt & Toad Head and Sandy’s Face Painting.
The Culpeper Tourism Department urges people to stay dry indoors.
Many shops and restaurants in Culpeper's historic downtown district will be open late and offering specials through Culpeper Downtown First Fridays.
Thanks to those merchants and Culpeper Renaissance Inc., there will be special sales, sip n shop, tastings, refreshments, artists and more.
