Havelock’s National Night Out event, originally scheduled for Saturday, has been postponed until Tuesday evening.

Weather forecasts of heavy rain on Saturday prompted the postponement.

“I hate to do it but it’s in our best interests,” Lt. Brian Woods, of the Havelock Police Department, said of the postponement. “This area is forecasted to get 1 to 3 inches of rain.”

All activities planned as part of Saturday’s event will instead take place on Tuesday, including a concert with the rock band Nantucket and country singer Erin Nenni.

Havelock’s 18th annual National Night Out is scheduled from 5 to 10 p.m. at Walter B. Jones Park.

Festivities start at 5 p.m. with free food and entertainment, and an opening ceremony is planned for 7 p.m.

At 7:30 p.m., Nenni is scheduled to take the stage. The East Carolina University graduate released an album in 2013 entitled “Good Day,” donating a portion of the proceeds from sales to Operation Homefront, which provides emergency financial help to military families.
