For the past year, people have been wondering if the 100th Annual West Side Nut Club Fall Festival will go on as planned.

And they might finally get a more clear answer on Monday, August 16th.

Members of the club, along with Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, are set to make an announcement about the festivities at 11:30 a.m. at the Franklin Street Library Park.

While the festival was canceled last year, a micro version did take place, with food vendors setting up shop around Franklin Street in October with masks on and customers socially distanced.

Of course, the half-pot was a big success as well.

Deputy Mayor Steve Schaefer took to Twitter to say the announcement was not about canceling the festivities and that people should go back to enjoying their Sunday. This tweet came after the public got into an uproar, speculating it would not take place.

We'll have a 44News crew at the announcement.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning.
