Flooding has the Taste of Minnesota looking for a new location.

According to a statement on their website, organizers said "safety is their top priority" as rising waters threaten to put Harriet Island under water. Organizers are looking at all their options for the festival to be held on July 3 to 6, the statement said.

Officials plan to notify the public of plans when they are determined.

This would have been the first time after a four year hiatus the festival would return to St. Paul.
