— The rain has put a damper on a Labor Day weekend tradition.

WRAL's 23rd Annual Pops in the Park concert, scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 1, has been canceled.

The grounds of Meredith College are soaked and crews are unable to set up.

With more rain expected for the weekend, the show was called off Friday afternoon. No rain date is scheduled.

Each year, tens of thousands of people attend the free, outdoor concert featuring the North Carolina Symphony, family activities and a fireworks display.
