Poor Air Quality Continues, Canceling Some Outdoor Events

BEND, OR -- Central Oregon remains under an air quality alert until at least Thursday night, as smoke continues to blanket the region from two fires burning in the Willamette National Forest. Click HERE for more on the air quality in your area. The heatwave is expected to start easing Thursday, with high temperatures predicted to be about 10 degrees cooler than Wednesday.

My Morning Jacket canceled their Wednesday evening show at the Hayden Homes Amphitheater due to the poor air quality. Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase.

My Morning Jacket’s statement on the cancelation:

Friends in Bend - We are so sorry to have to cancel tonight’s show due to the unhealthy air quality caused by wildfires in the area. This decision was not made lightly and we used the best possible information we have available at the present time out of concern for the safety of our fans and crew. Tickets for this show will be refunded. We are sending our support and appreciation to the firefighting teams that are working to control these fires. Please stay safe. We hope to return to Bend very soon.
