The final day of the annual Let’s Go Fishing Show event at the Gateway Center has been canceled.

The Gateway Center released a statement Sunday before the event was scheduled to start saying it was forced to cancel due to a water main break on site. The city’s Public Works Department was addressing the issue but could not guarantee a time in which it could fix the problem.

The convention center stated that it could not open an event to the public when there is no working fire suppressant system or water available for visitors to drink or flush toilets.
