COLFAX, LA/ 12 AUG 20/ Mudfest owner says Trucks Gone Wild event will go on this weekend as a peaceful protest

SIGACT: Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal denied the land owner/event organizer a permit to host the event. The owner rebranded the event a peaceful protest after a list of COVID-19 related safety protocols were rejected by the state.

RECOMMENDATION: Local governments are unable to prevent people from assembling, regardless of the event. Be advised that all gatherings will be the target of increased scrutiny by local politicians.
