Fourteen acts will play an array of music including rock, folk and reggae, to name a few, according to organizers.
Not even halfway through April, Merced has been soaked with more than twice the rainfall than is typical for the entire month, according to forecasters. Beginning Friday night, Merced saw 2.44 inches of rain through the weekend, which is the only rainfall since April 1. The 30-year average for April is 0.34 inches, according to the National Weather Service in Hanford.
It was unclear Friday when officials would be able to reopen the Highway 140 entrance to Yosemite National Park, which was blocked a day earlier by a rock slide that sent huge boulders and debris crashing onto the roadway, a spokeswoman said.
