SALISBURY — No matter how much it may rain today, Pops at the Post will go on outdoors Saturday as planned.
With dry skies forecast for Saturday evening, maestro David Hagy has made the official decision. Pops at the Post — the annual free symphony concert on the Salisbury Post loading dock — will take place outside.
“On the computer the chance of rain is zero, which doesn’t guarantee anything, but we are going to be at the Post,” said Hagy, conductor for the Salisbury Symphony.
The concert will begin at 8 p.m., with the Swing Band warming up the crowd from 5 to 7 p.m.
Thousands of people are expected to attend.
A few tailgating spots remain available. Phillip Winters at the Salisbury Post said he will accept payment until 5 p.m. today to reserve a spot.
The spots in the parking lots on South Church Street used by First Bank and the Salisbury Post are available for a $50 donation to Pops at the Post, which is now a nonprofit organization, meaning donations are tax-deductible.
The parking lots will open at 1 p.m. Saturday for tailgating. Vehicles must be in reserved spots by 6 p.m.
For more information about reserve tailgate parking, contact Winters at pwinters@salisburypost.com or by calling 704-797-4205.
See Saturday’s Post for last-minute updates and reminders about the concert.
