Event cancellations impact charities and communities

Cancellations of some festivals, art shows and other spring and summer events are impacting the bottom lines of charities and communities around Door and Kewaunee counties.  COVID-19 concerns led Door County to cancel fireworks celebrations in Baileys Harbor, Egg Harbor, Sturgeon Bay, Maplewood, Gills Rock, parades in Baileys Harbor and Egg Harbor and the Freedom Fest on July 11th in Sister Bay.  Louise Howson, with the Sister Bay Advancement Association, says such events are primarily fundraisers for local non-profit groups which also impact local businesses.




COVID-19 concerns have also led to the cancellation of Kewaunee County's Memorial Day festivities, July 4th fireworks and the 2020 Shanty Days celebration.
