A statement from the City of Pelham:
It is with deep regret we have made the decision to cancel the 6th Annual Palooza in the Park for May 2020, in light of the concerns regarding COVID-19.
As with most events of this size, advertising and marketing, booking music and Kidzapalooza events along with the coordination of vendors and food trucks began months in advance, and it would be irresponsible to continue to spend funds without the knowledge that Palooza in the Park would take place.
All vendors who have already paid their booth rental fee will be refunded in full. Any vendors who have submitted payment will have their payment returned to them.
While it was a hard decision to make this announcement, our concerns remain with our staff, vendors, volunteers and the community we serve.
