Some Indiana cities are pulling the plug on Labor Day weekend events amid concerns that Hurricane Isaac's remnants could dump heavy rains on the state.

WISH-TV reports that organizers canceled the Central Indiana Labor Council's annual Labor Day planned for Saturday in Indianapolis due to weather concerns. The city's Miracle Mile Parade and America We Remember events have also been canceled.

And West Lafayette has canceled the north-central Indiana city's Global Fest, which had been scheduled for Saturday. Mayor John Dennis says the festival was canceled due to concerns about rain, potential storms and high winds as Isaac's remnants swirl across the state this weekend.

Forecasters say the system could bring three to five inches of rain to the state's midsection between Friday and Tuesday, with locally heavier amounts possible.
