A stormy forecast has prompted Aquatennial officials to move today's press conference to introduce the 2008 schedule from Peavey Plaza to the IDS Crystal Court.

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, Minneapolis Downtown Council President and CEO Sam Grabaraki, 2008 Aquatennial Commodore Mary Niemeyer and Downtown Council Vice President for Marketing and Events Leah Wong will be on hand for the announcement at noon today, a festival spokeswoman said.

The 69th Aquatennial will run from July 18-27 and serve as the official celebration of the city of Minneapolis' sesquicentennial.
