Due to the approach of Hurricane Sandy, at least two planned weekend events have been postponed.

The Brunswick County Country Music Fall Festival originally planned for Saturday at Planet Fun in Shallotte has been postponed until 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Nov. 10.

Holden Beach’s Festival by the Sea celebration scheduled for this weekend has been postponed until Nov. 17 and 18.

A decision was made Thursday afternoon to postpone the annual two-day event at a meeting of the Greater Holden Beach Merchants Association.

Weather is predicted to be inclement this weekend as the hurricane moves north up the East Coast from Florida.

Check back with the Beacon in the near future for details about the new dates for the festival now scheduled in three more weeks.
