HEADLAND, Ala. (WDHN) — This past week the wiregrass was threatened with some weather challenges.

With weekend events like Juneteenth, Father’s Day, and Headland’s Under The Oaks ahead some plans were put on hold.

“We were gonna do a little barbecue out by the pool and that’s kinda pushed that back a little bit but now we’re tryna make some plans me and my wife just gonna hang out in the house and watch some Netflix a little bit and just hang out,” father Luis Sanchez said.

Some father’s plans wasn’t the only thing pushed back.

For the Dothan Juneteenth parade, they made adjustments by moving all outside events inside.

Over at the Headland square, they told WDHN rain or shine they’re still going to have a great time celebrating concert series Under The Oaks.

We’re expecting it to be a really good night tonight and the band’s setting up, rain or shine we are open,” Main Street Headland President, Stormy Hicks said.

The square was filled with local food vendors, farmers with fresh produce, music and lots of family fun.
