Balloons 'N BBQ gives way to COVID-19
Wakefield Republican - Sean A.
Thursday, August 20, 2020

COVID-19 has claimed a local victim as Balloons 'N BBQ has cancelled plans for a 2020 celebration.

"We just couldn't move forward with the weekend in light of all that is going on," committee member Megan Weaver said. "We tried looking at a lot of options but at the end of the day - this was the best option."

Whether balloons would come, getting the people social distanced on Main Street, nothing seemed to work.

"We tried to think of a way to make it work," Weaver said. "We thought it was just not possible."

Between thinking of the safety of the townspeople and the participants, the outcome was a no-brainer.

"We didn't want to have an event and expose everyone to something bad," Weaver said. "This is supposed to be a fun thing - we'll wait until it is a fun-thing again."
