AtlanticFest 2020 Cancelled
The Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce announces AtlanticFest, rescheduled for September 26th, has been cancelled.
“With COVID-19 cases rising in our county, the extension of the State Public Health Emergency and other liability concerns, AtlanticFest isn’t feasible this year. We understand how eager everyone is to get out and about. AtlanticFest draws thousands of people every year and the health of the community is our highest priority,” Bailey Smith, Executive Director at the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce stated.
AtlanticFest, presented by First Whitney Bank & Trust, is the Chamber’s largest fundraiser of the year and has been a community staple for almost 30 years. To still offer a community event, the Chamber will be hosting a Drive-In Movie September 26th.
“We wanted to be able to give everyone an opportunity to get out of the house while maintaining social distancing. We’ve had a few Drive-In movie events over the last couple years that have been a hit and we’re excited to be able to offer it again,” Smith stated.
More details about the Drive-In Movie will be made available in the coming weeks including location, time and feature movie.
