2020 HOLIDAY IN THE PARK CANCELLED
It is with deep regret that I must announced that the 2020 Holiday in the Park has been cancelled. Due to the widespread Coronavirus, and the unknown proportions it may reach by November, the West Orange City Council voted unanimously at its July 13, 2020 meeting to cancel this year’s event. The decision was not made lightly, nor without a great deal of thought and discussion. Our festival is very well attended, as you know, with vendors and guests traveling in from areas other than our own. Social distancing and enforcement of facial coverings would be virtually impossible.
With the health and safety of our citizens as our primary concern, we did not feel that there was any other choice to be made for this year. We do look forward to the 2021 festival, and hope to have all of our 2019 vendors back with us, as well as all of our visitors and guests. So mark your calendar for November 6, 2021. We hope to see you at the Holiday in the Park that day!
In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy, and may God bless you all.
It is crucial that you complete your Census form…either on paper, online or by telephone. By taking just a few minutes you can make a big difference in our community!
