WILLMAR — Due to the timing of a late afternoon rain event, the opening act Radio Acoustic will not be performing tonight at Rockin' Robbins at Robbins Island Regional Park.

The good news is the skies are forecast to clear up in time for headliner act Good for Gary to take the stage at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Current report from the scene: Food vendors have arrived, the beer tent and Jumbotron are on-site and Rockin' Robbins will start up as soon as weather permits. Rain is forecast last this afternoon but is not expected to linger.
