"I looks like we're even going to get a higher level coming in this evening," said Franklin Fine Arts Council president Pat Dolecki who was tracking the EPA website. "It's going to be going from red and may be in the purple range by tonight which is very dangerous.
In a statement issued a few moments ago from the City of Franklin: "Per the US EPA, air conditions in our area are unhealthy, with the potential of becoming very unhealthy and dangerous. For the safety of our singers, staff, and audience, we have decided to cancel the Taste of Talent Performances scheduled for Wednesday, June 28."
"It's something unexpected and we will get through this and maybe next week will be even better," Dolecki said.
The city is asking for help in spreading the word.
