Heavy rain, flooding, storm damage and cleanup have pushed back the opening of the Wilder Pageant Production in Walnut Grove.

A statement from pageant organizers says this weekend's shows have been rescheduled to Thursday, Friday and Saturday for two weekends.

Dates are now July 12, 13, 14 and July 19, 20 and 21.

Current ticket holders may exchange tickets for any of the other performances.

Pageant Suppers and the Family Festival are canceled for this weekend.

With over nine inches of rain in a very short time, several Southwest Minnesota communities lost power, saw roads washed out with many flood and no travel warnings.
