Another big event has been scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2021 Mount Pearl Frosty Festival is cancelled, the board of directors announced Thursday.
The festival, the largest winter festival in Atlantic Canada, had been scheduled for Feb. 3-14.
“Out of an abundance of caution, the 2021 Mount Pearl Frosty Festival has been cancelled,”board chairman Robert Hayes said in a brief news release.
“The safety of our patrons, volunteers, and sponsors is our number one priority. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, the board of directors made the responsible decision to cancel this year’s festival and looks forward to an exciting return in 2022.”
