Pink Cupcake Walk, Taste of Charlotte postponed due to expected impacts from Hurricane Ian
The walk is a partnership between the festival, WBTV and Go Jen Go!
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - For the first time in event history, the Taste of Charlotte and the Pink Cupcake Walk are being rescheduled due to expected inclement weather this weekend from Hurricane Ian.
According to organizers, Taste of Charlotte will now be held from Oct. 7 through Oct. 9 and the Pink Cupcake Walk will take place on Oct. 8, all at Truist Field.
“We’ve always prided ourselves on being a rain or shine event, but this is a little different,” Matt DuBois, the owner of Taste of Charlotte, said. “This is about keeping people safe and making sure that there’s an environment that everybody, both our sponsors and our restaurants, but also everybody that wants to come out to it, you want to be able to enjoy it and this is our best decision to make that happen.”
The walk is a partnership between the festival, WBTV and Go Jen Go!, which raises money for people battling breast cancer. Walk four laps around the field and get four mini cupcakes from local bakeries.
The Pink Cupcake Walk starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday before Taste of Charlotte begins that day.
