'Burnout' festival at Tulare County Fairgrounds canceled

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- It was supposed to be the first festival approved by the California State Bureau of Cannabis Control, but the City of Tulare refused to sign off on it.

They had advertised that the first 500 people who showed up to the event would get a free marijuana sample.

Organizers say they will be rescheduling the event, but it is canceled for this weekend. There is no word yet on when or where the event will be moved to. More than 600 tickets have already been sold.
