Canceling picnic due to weather

We had a company picnic scheduled yesterday that was rained out. The caterer is demanding we pay 100% of the event. The contract did not cover this so my question is what is fair? We gave them a 50% deposit and told him we would cover his cost, but he wants to charge us for 2 kegs that were not tapped, two bounce houses that could not have been used if we wanted to, the DJ that never played one song, a full day pay for his entire staff, etc.

I can understand the food, some labor for his people but I think he is taking it to far. We did not choose to cancel the event, it was rained out doesn't he have some risk in this whole thing? Doesn't he have relationship with his DJ and vendors to cut their cost?
