Frank Productions released additional details on Monday morning about the Freakfest 2007 Halloween party on State Street set for this Saturday, Oct. 28.
With less than a week remaining before the event, the concert promotions company is working with the city of Madison and Associated Students of Madison at the UW to iron out the final planning.

Dave Maynard from Frank Productions says that they are "crossing the t's and dotting the i's" in continuing meetings with the city through the rest of this week. The biggest issue that remains is the forecast for Saturday. "We have contingency plans in place," says Maynard, "but the event is ultimately rain or shine, though we're hoping to have decent weather. It's pretty early to start really determining what the forecast is going to be. We all know that Wisconsin weather changes at the drop of a hat."
