A spring time tradition on the University of West Florida campus is being given a break this year. The "Festival on the Green", a two day event  which is usually in late March or early April, has been put on hiatus by the university.

Dr. Brendan Kelly, Vice President for University Advancement at the UWF says the festival may return as the university reevaluates all of its community activities.
