    I’m so sorry to hear that it is cancelled. Please try and schedule it for later date. It is one of things the downtown merchants look forward for.

      Thank you for your feedback. We considered this. But, our county has had quite a clean up, as do many other areas of the state.
      We will be back next year – hopefully bigger than ever!
