You can now add Downtown Alive to the list of events canceled in Lafayette.

Mayor-President Joshua Guillory announced that there are to be no large gatherings in parks this weekend, thus DTA decided to do what is in the best interest for the public's safety and that is to cancel Downtown Alive this week.

They will continue to monitor the Coronavirus situation in the state of Louisiana and decide on the status of future concerts in the days and weeks ahead.

Remember to avoid large crowds and do what it takes to protect yourself from the virus, like washing your hands.

Here is the statement Downtown Alive released via social media this evening. And we hope to see you downtown soon.
