SunFest isn’t until next week, but crews are already busy closing roads as preparation begins for the annual downtown concert and festival.
Road closures began on Wednesday and will continue through May 9. Crews are busy constructing the stages along the waterfront.
SunFest will be four days this year instead of five days like in previous years. Saturday is the last day to purchase discount tickets that will allow concertgoers to buy a four-day pass for $81, a two-day pass for $65 or $43 for a one-day pass. SunFest is May 3 to May 6.
Who’s ready for @SunFestFL? Preps are underway! Who are you looking forward to seeing? I can’t wait for @pitbull -if I can stay up that late on a Sunday 🤷🏼♀️ #morningshowproblems #amcrew @WPTV @AshleighWalters @MikeTrimWPTV @AndrewRuizWPTV pic.twitter.com/F8BWJlzJ1n
